I gathered eggs yesterday and this was in with the others. I thought it looked extra interesting so I thought I would share it with you. I wonder what happens inside the hen that causes such trauma to the egg shell? Looks painful to me...(-: I will say that in the 18 years I have raised chickens I have never had an egg look like this one. So I guess it doesn't happen to often. I have had eggs with no shell before. Another rare occurrence though. I will blame it on the weather. Its been in the high 20's here so the girls are probably cold. I guess I need to make little jackets for them to wear during this colder weather(-: Seriously though I think I will run to the feed store this morning and get them some straw to sleep in. They liked that last winter. My girls would rather sit on the floor then roost. They are strange birds. Some of them will roost but the others prefer sitting on the floor. Maybe the straw will help warm them up a bit. It is suppose to rain in the next few days. Winter has finally arrived I guess.
Is everyone done with their Christmas shopping yet? I still have a bit more to do. Hopefully that gets finished up today.
