    Thanks all! I'm amazed at how bright it is! It's almost to splendid to eat. . . Almost ;) it's my Cream Legbar that produced it :) I wasn't expecting her to lay to mid-late Jan so I was very surprised!

    Void where prohibited.
    You could always blow the egg, and save the shell as a souvenir!

    I could blow the the egg what a smashing idea! Although will all her eggs be this bright or will they vary my other chickens egg colour are pretty uniform so I hope it stays that colour :)
