Last night at dusk, as I went outside to lock up the girls. They were all inside. However, a bright little egg was rolled underneath the outside roost. Someone had laid an egg in the run. This was not the first time. I am not sure who. Here is the evidence.
Feathers is not laying eggs because she is broody. Fifi is now 20 1/2 weeks. Dottie Speckles is 17 1/2 weeks. This eggs is larger than our regular Silkie sized eggs. So, is it too big for Fifi to have laid for her first one? Could Dottie Speckles be laying already? I assumed that Dottie Speckles would follow the larger breeds and lay closer to 25 weeks. Could this be a “fart egg”? Typically, “fart eggs” occur as a malfunction in the egg making process and are about the size of a quarter. This one is larger.
So, the questions remains, who laid an egg?
