Kelley : Hi Gina! I enjoy receiving your newsletter and
am always learning something new or reading an interesting story
with every issue. I wanted to share a few pictures that I thought
were very interesting, and that the other readers would enjoy.
husband and I went out of town for Christmas and had some friends
taking care of our cats and chickens. Our first morning back I
went out to the coop only to discover the biggest egg I had ever
seen. I thought someone might have replaced on of my hens with
an ostrich!! The egg measured 3 inches tall by 2 inches wide.
we finally cracked the egg open we expected to find a multiple
yolk egg, but instead we found another perfectly formed egg inside
the giant egg!! We were shocked! It was the last thing we expected
to find, and I am guessing pretty rare!
next picture is an xray that I took of one of my hens that I thought
was egg bound. Just thought it was a really neat xray and wanted
to share with everyone. She ended up passing the egg on her own,
but has not laid since.
