A Mystery Solved?
Well it had to be one of these two that has now layed three eggs.
So if you got this egg who would you think layed it? Seems obvious right?
Well Wednesday morning I heard a very loud and proud egg song. Running outside to see what the ruckus was about I find this one in the run egg singing her head off louder than I have ever heard her make any sort of noise ever while the rest were out and about. I eagerly look in the egg box. There’s nothing there. That’s right nothing. She was announcing her intention to lay an egg. After a chat with her, she calms down, and goes back in the nest box. A little later before work I looked in and she was still in the nest box. I checked and the twin to the egg above was in the box. She left as soon as I took it. It was like she was keeping it warm for me.
Yep. That’s right. My only remaining Easter Egger lays brown eggs. Ain’t that a kick in the pants. >sigh< But, I am lucky she has layed anything is the way I look at it. I just really wanted pretty blue/green eggs. I would have been happy with any shade. Maybe next year when Betty goes broody, I’ll get her some Auracana eggs to hatch.
