Someone Laid an Egg

August 2, 2011

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?

  1. LOL, oh I love this egg investigation! Also, I am in awe at the size of Oyster Cracker's egg. 🙂 Stella, my largest Buff, looks like she's going to be a big girl. Hoping she gives big eggs too! xo Helena P.S. If you get a chance, check out my blog today. I have some updated pics of "the girls."
