    Went down to check on the new chicks I bought today at the chicken swap and happened to look into the nesting boxes and found this:

    It's a little smaller then a normal egg, but a little bigger then a normal pullet egg. :)

    It's actually lighter, like it looks in the second picture.


    I blew it out and plan on keeping it forever.

    Couldn't bring myself to crack it open.

    I was hoping at least one of my three would lay blue/green eggs, and my girl Owly seems to have come through for me!
