Talk about timing!

Just came in from collecting eggs. Same routine, different day. However something happened that has never happened to me before. See Bonnie? Well, her behind shot. Bonnie is insistent on being broody and wanting to hatch eggs. She has been trying to sit on the other hens eggs as well as her own.

See this egg? Nothing unusual about. But, there is a little story about this egg.

As I was collecting eggs, I put my hand under Bonnie to feel for eggs and the next thing I know, she laid this egg right into the palm of my hand! Yup, just plopped it right on out. I have never had that happen before. And am extremely grateful it wasn't poo she plopped out!!!
Until next time....................


  1. Hehehe Perfect timing! And Bonnie has a very cute Behind!

  2. Bonnie is spreading herself pretty thin!

    Hmmm, eggs on demand!

  3. That's what I call prompt service!

  4. What a thrill that must have been!

  5. You need to take your catcher's mitt to gather eggs now.


  6. I just got caught up on your blog again. Cool story about the egg in hand. Also, I agree: if one is going to get a tattoo, make it something really special, like anything to do with a beloved animal family member. I liked your frog pics, too!

  7. wow, that's pretty cool! And I thought finding a still warm egg was something. You've definitely got me beat!

  8. Cute! Perhaps that was her way of thanking you for allowing her to be broody. :)


Thank you for visiting. Hope to see you again soon.
