Claire returns with an oddity
July 11, 2009 § Leave a comment
Claire laid her first egg after moulting today, but it wasn’t her typical brown and speckly type. It was something rather peculiar:
In our experience and from reading elsewhere, occasional strange eggs are normal, especially for pullets or for hens coming back into lay (like in this case). If you only buy eggs at the supermarket you get the impression that all eggs are of uniform size, shape and coloration, but of course all the oddities have been filtered out. In reality, all manner of strange things pop out.
Laying an egg really is a peculiar and miraculous thing!
PS: Claire followed this with a normal egg on the 14th of July (64 g), but nothing since…
