    and can I just say, EEEEEEEWWWWWWWW! [​IMG] Yuck! Yuck! Yuck! [​IMG] AACCCKKKKKK!!! [​IMG] I almost threw up. I had to get the garden spade to get it out. I was NOT going to touch it. It rolled off the spade and splat on the ground. Then my dog grabbed it and ate it! [​IMG] [​IMG] No kisses from her for the next week.

    I actually thought the soft shelled egg was fun to play with - squishy!

    I found one the other day as well. Imagine my surpeise, when I look into the nest box...see 3 eggs...and reach in to grab one thats warm and squishy! I pulled my hand right back out. Thought it might have been a mouse or something worse. I had to look again! Yup, its a softy...and still warm. Altho I dont like getting them, they are neat once in a while!

    I got my first softy a few weeks ago, scrambled it and fed to the chickens.

    I was told not to let me dog have any becasue they like it and might start eating them when you don't want them to have them. Be careful.... [​IMG]
