WOW!

One of our chickens got bored this winter and laid an ostrich egg.

None of the ladies out in the barn are fessing up and claiming it. The little girls think it belongs to the rooster. I think an ostrich wandered into the yard and hung out with Molly, Rocky and Eagle had a nice game of cards and some ICED tea. Or those hens are just so bored of the same old boring hen house surround by snow they thought they would pass a fast one on us and leave this whopper egg!


The one on the right it an average sized egg. The one on the left is unusually large for an average sized chicken.

Hee! That's awesome! I love that the little girls think it belongs to the rooster. Too funny!

I bet one hen dared the other hen to do it.

Hi! I'm a friend of Tristi's. Our chickens lay some of those huge eggs too! It's weird.
