    I am sure this is nothing new to most of you, but found this egg tonight. It was not in the nesting boxes (it was in the corner). It is the oddest egg I have gotten so far.

    Had one just exactly like that from one of our red sex links. We figured it was a soft shell that hardened a bit where it was laid (not in the nest box.) We ate it. [​IMG]
