    I have 31 20 week old RIRs. For the past couple weeks or so I've been getting a little egg here and there and the last few day, 3-5 little eggs a day. Then today I come home and find this [​IMG]

    I think an Emu must have slipped into the coop while I was at work! Is this normal?

    I can't imagine the relief one of my little girls must have felt [​IMG]
