bloomy

my olive egger laid an extra bloomy egg today.

when it is wet it is the same color as her normal eggs, but it dries again to be grey. strange bird. :Crazy:

Oh yeah, she lays a jumbo egg one day and the next a small egg. I think she is the pullet with the most egg issue I've ever had.

Re: bloomy

Yeah, looks like she overcooked the left one!  :funny:  How old is she as it could even up a bit over time?  We often get different colours/bloom on my Black pennies if they haven't laid for  a few days.  I wonder if it could be diet related too?

Re: bloomy

She is the only one who has "issues". She will lay a normal pullet egg one day then four days latter lay a double yolker. Then lay a regular pullet egg. Then lay one with a soft shell, then lay a double... Today was the first big grey egg. She is a blue copper marans and Amerucana mix. "Olive egger"

Re: bloomy

"Kay don't tell any one, but this is how you fix that problem... Pick her up on the next new moon - right at dusk, with her head pointed due North, and pet her while you tell her how pretty she is, and that everything's going to be okay. Set her back on the roost and then you spin around clockwise three times.

It will either work or it won't.

Re: bloomy

Great advise! I'll try it but I'm guessing it won't work. Half empty... I'm hoping in. Afew months she will figure it all out. Got to give a girl time to get her stuff all working.

Re: bloomy

haha. yes! my DH brings up the "chickens, chickens, tee hee hee" quote often. He was hoping we would get a 'smiley' for that. I'm glad you remembered.

in case i didn't really answer SLF, she is 31 weeks old. I thought she would get into a rhythm by now.

"Pick her up on the next new moon - right at dusk, with her head pointed due North, and pet her while you tell her how pretty she is, and that everything's going to be okay. Set her back on the roost and then you spin around clockwise three times."    Then sing boom bloom boom go back to your womb while walking backwards towards your house and then    " when you walk back to the house, say "chickens, chickens, tee hee hee"  under your breath!"    Then stop in your tracks....look up at the moon over your right shoulder and wave.  Then run back to your house like the way chickens run.  When you arrive at your steps....scratch like a chicken in the leaves...squat...tread...sqwawk and the next morning...you will lay an egg.... :shock: :funny:

I absolutely love you guys. Anyone that can poke funny at themselves is just the best. :happycrowd"

Re: bloomy

I have to laugh at how a post can get turned in another direction so easily from a bloomy egg to passing wind and holding a hen in a certain way to correct her egg problem :funny:
