    Hi there,

    I recently aquired a stray chook that wandered into a mate house one night.

    AS far as I can tell it's an ISA Brown. It's very tame and friendly and has decided to stay so I built it a temporary hutch.

    Anyhow when I let it out this morning, there was an egg yolk on the floor of the hutch. No shell, no albumen, just a yolk.
    What do the experts make of this?

    Thanks in advance

    Perhaps it tried to whip up an angel food cake.[​IMG]

    Sorry, just a yolk, I haven't a clue, perhaps someone else will.

    It's very kind of you to bring her in.

    If she is young, I've heard that they can do some quirky things when they are new layers.

    She might just be a new layer, try offering her some oyster shells.

    Or she could be a egg eater and started eating the egg and then stoped when you came out.
