    My trusty cream legbars who always lay beautifully in their nestboxes have this week laid two miniature eggs on the floor of their run. I can't work out why! The eggs are identical in colour and texture to their usual eggs so I don't think it's another bird (and there are no nests nearby). Any ideas what's going on??[​IMG]

    Could just be a glitch....happens sometimes.
    Funky egg sometimes surprise them, don't 'feel' the same,
    and they don't get to the nests before they pop out.
