Anyway, I had a bad day, and when I came home, it was dripping wet snow and just did nothing to lighten the mood. I have a "bad day" cloud over my head that nothing but a good night's sleep will erase. Not even looking at the chicks kicking like crazy in their eggs helped. That's why I'm surprised when I went into the coop and saw this....
|See that little one in the middle? That's what I'm talking about. :)|
This is the third one I've gotten, and they are few and far between. The first had no yolk, so I thought it was someone's dud. The second one had a perfectly formed yolk, but it was tiny. Again, I thought maybe it was someone's first attempt or just a weird egg. But this is the third. And I finally figured it out, on today of all days.
Do you know what it is?
It's a guinea egg. Turns out Violet not only survived her ordeal, but she actually lays eggs.
Well, on the coop floor and probably all over the woods, but let's not be choosy, right?
Who knew? Not me. Or, not until today, anyway. Go figure. I guess that mystery is solved. Today was not a total waste after all.
Here's to a much better tomorrow.
