    I have no idea which of my girls left this for me, but one of them deposited an egg the size of a dime!!! I've heard of little ones before, but this is smaller than any I've seen.

    Hey, good idea "what was I thinking". I do want to blow it out and save it. I doubt I'll ever see anything so cute again. It would be fun to hang on to. Does anyone know how I ought to blow it out? I've never done that before.

    Hahaha [​IMG], I got an egg just like that from one of my girls. She laid it while she was roosting.

    I'd say Gizmo is lacking for attention...

    Quote:You poke a hole on each end, stick something through the hole into the egg to mix up the yolk, then blow, shake or run water through it to get the egg out. Then you can soak it in mild bleach water.
