I have found eggs when they were freshly laid, but never THIS fresh!!! My little EE Miranda went to the nest and was acting like she was about to lay so I followed her. Unfortunately, my BR Nightingale is a notorious housekeeper and had "cleaned" most of the straw out of the nest (she does after her egg is gathered). But, rather than disturb her, I watched. Here the little sweetie is, just about to lay and just as the egg went ka-thunk on the unprotected wood. Thankfully it didn't break.

I was literally jumping up and down!!! I hope to have that happen again!!!

That would be too cool, to "catch" one!!! Almost like helping deliver a baby!!! LOL

Thanks, I just love the color of hers. I tend to blow her eggs out and keep the shells.

That is cool. I can't wait until my chickens lay eggs. The egg looks so beautiful all glossy, beautiful chicken too.

Thanks and thanks.
I have decided the only logical thing to do is move into the chicken coop to watch them lay eggs. I may as well, my bathroom is essentiallly a large brooder right now, anyway! LOL

My 10 y/o looked at the pic and said "why is it so shiny?" When I told him because it is still wet, he said "that is just gross mom".

LOL......had Miranda been named when she was getting her big girl feathers, she could very well be called "Ugly" too!!! She went through a rather.....ummm.......homely period.
