Would like some interesting egg facts?
About yesterdays post? If you guessed Kylo, then you’re correct! 🥚🥚🥚
She was the first one to surprise us with an egg, and it was like no egg I’ve ever seen.
It was the tiniest egg, similar to a size of a ping pong ball, with little dimples over its shiny surface, and still warm to the touch, which made us all fall in love with it instantly.
Here’s an interesting fact: Did you know that too much spinach in a chickens diet, may result in a very soft, rubbery and almost opaque looking egg?
I nearly had a heart attack, when I found one of these soft clear eggs in the coop, but luckily after a bit of googling, I was reassured that spinach drains calcium from chicken, and as a result the chicken does not have enough to produce a hard shell, and instead lays what appears to be just the membrane 🥴.
Interestingly enough, this also explains the patch of spinach that had disappeared from my veggie patch!
