    I just thought it was so cute I had to share...thus far we have had no fart eggs, or soft shell eggs. So, when DH offered to blow this little bugger out, I assumed there would be no yolk - but goodness, that cute little yolk was there, proud as can be.

    I just have to save this shell... I just haven't seen anything so wee little! I wonder what my poor little bok-bok was thinking when she laid it...?
