The strangest thing happened in our chicken coop this week.
My daughter went to do her daily egg collection and found the something weird.
This looks like a plain old chicken egg, right?
Well … a blue chicken egg, but still a chicken egg (we have a few Araucana hens).
Here it is zoomed a little farther out.
And side by side with one of her regular chicken eggs …
For a moment she thought that perhaps a wild bird had confused the chicken coop for its own nest.
We knew that was impossible though, because the eggs were laid early in the morning, before she opened the coop door, so a bird couldn’t have flown in.
Our best guess?
One of the chickens got the hiccups and laid an “oops” egg. HA!
Do chickens get the hiccups?
I have no idea, but it was the only explanation we could think of.
We couldn’t quite decide what to do with it.
We were tempted to crack it open – just to see if it had a yolk inside.
It was so adorable, we hated to break it open only to discover it might not have a yolk.
And if it did have a yolk, what in the world would we make with it?
Maybe one cupcake?
So … it’s been sitting in my refrigerator, and the mystery continues.
I guess eventually curiosity will overcome the cuteness factor and I’ll crack it to find out.
When that happens, I’ll give an update, because I know inquiring minds want to know. 🙂
In other chicken news …
I want to keep my line of stencils to about 25 designs, so I decided to discontinue the chicken shape stencil to open up space for new stencil designs.
I have some of the small chicken shape stencils left in my stock, so I decided to offer them as a free gift with the purchase of the Poultry Feed stencil.
The Poultry Feed stencil can be purchased HERE.
A limited supply is available, so this offer is on a first come, first served basis. I’ll update this post when I run out of them. NONE LEFT
