    I I think my girls are confused, I put golf balls in their nests, so they know where to lay. But today, I went out there, and I got a golf ball shaped egg. That's not what the golf ball was for. Where to lay, not what shape to lay!! Silly girls, maybe one is blonde [​IMG]

    Maybe they were just getting back at you for putting the golf ball in their box making them look stupid. They were going to make you guess which one is the real one. [​IMG]

    I got a round egg about the size of a marble from one of my eastereggers. They had been laying close to a year at the time.

    Yeah they are new layers. It's all very funny to watch. Weird shapes and colors. They haven't quite got it down yet [​IMG]
