An egg at last


The smaller, pinker, dirtier egg to the left is ours. The others are storebought.

Stewie and Dumpling quit laying in August for reasons we never determined. We have been waiting for the new ladies to start laying so that we could cull the older two – but someone muscled into the nest boxes and laid an egg yesterday! (We had it blocked off to discourage the new girls from sleeping and pooping in there.) It looks like one of Dumpling’s: slightly smaller than a store-bought large egg and with a faint pink tint.
