I was out of town the last 4 days (DH taking care of the animals) and got home this evening and went in to see my hens. Fed the girls some treats (mealworms) and picked up one of Buff Orp hens (they are lap-chickens). I feel this plop, look down, thinking she pooped on me, and find a shell-less egg in my lap. This is our only shell-less egg, and certainly the only egg laid in my lap. Anyone ever have this happen??? Of note, this was about 8 pm, and our hens lay almost exclusively from mid morning to mid afternoon. STRANGE!!!
