    Went out to the pen today and saw a small white thing on the ground. Picked it up, and by golly, it's an egg. i can only assume it came from Spreckles, our Spangled Old English Game bantam, as she is the smallest, and has been looking like she was getting ready to lay.

    So, for comparison, in the picture below, from left to right we have an egg from one of our Easter Eggers, a Silkie egg, a Showgirl egg, Spreckles egg, and a cocktail olive.

    Stay tuned tomorrow when i crack it open to see what's inside!

    i just put it there as a size comparison. Just need to be careful to put the olive in my martini, not the egg.
