This morning Moonpie ran into the kitchen holding a beautifully tinted green egg.
Moonpie: "Look Momma!"
Me: "Oh, good job babe, you found another egg" (her 3rd of the day)
MP: "Yeah, Goldie was just sitting in my lap and then she started laying this egg"
M: "She laid an egg, IN YOUR LAP?"
MP: "Yeah, and when I saw it coming out I just went ahead and pulled it a little- like this" (demonstration ensues)
M: "Wait, the chicken was in your lap laying an egg and then you pulled it out?"
There was more, but you get the gist. That crazy girl, delivering chicken eggs. She has a future as a midwife- a chicken midwife.
This incident solved a mystery for us. We thought we had one serious producing Arecauna, but it turns out our Wyandottes lay tinted eggs as well. Good to know, I was feeling a little sorry for ol' Lucy, thinking she was turning out 3 a day!
Upcoming post: our trip to SanFran. Oh the anticipation!
