  1. If I wouldn't have been there, and helped her with it, I wouldnt have believed it. She is 2 1/2, in the middle of a molt, and has left me some of the biggest eggs I have ever seen. She has not been laying for a month or so. When I cut it in half it was layers around each other. It almost looked like tree rings! any clues here everyone?

    Ive seen a few eggs like that here on BYC before.
     
  3. She seems ok after she pushed it out, back to her normal everyday stuff.
