    I would hazard to say that it was Nugget...only because Penny's a silkie mix and her eggs are a darker tan.
    that was a funny post.

    Quote:I think so, too. My black silkie, Elvira, has darker tan eggs. Nugget looks like the guilty party!!

    I'm glad I could make everyone laugh! [​IMG]
