Just plain weird.

Maris tucked up so tightly that her head is under her tail.

The egg Buffy laid yesterday. I don’t care what you say, that’s just shoddy workmanship.

  1. Apparently, and I’m quoting here, the ripply/crinkly thingy on eggs occurs about 15/17 hours before it’s laid. If the bird is given a shock or fright while the egg is forming it causes a crack in the forming shell. The ripples are caused by the shell reforming over the crack!! Aren’t you glad I told you all that? I actually watched it on ‘Jimmy’s Farm’ last night on BBC Knowledge, so now I feel quite well informed and able to show off………….:o)

    You’d think Maris would have learnt to burrow under your quilts for warmth by now 😛

    Was Buffy left outside…perhaps that was the shock needed to “ripple” that egg.

    Poor little Buffy.

  4. Mad Woman says:

    Maybe a vampire scared Buffy…that would explain the ripple.

    I want a cat that colour!

    Interesting egg. Was it okay inside?

  6. trash says:

    You would think with having faced all those vampires and assorted scarey things there would be not much that scared Buffy.

    I always thought that a ripply egg like that was a sign of calcium deficiency, and remedied it with shell grit. It seemed to help (from memory).

    However I also like the thought that it is an ‘Egg of Fright’!

    You’ve got to have a word to that chook. That’s just a lazy effort.
    As for your kitty – is there anything sweeter than a kitty curled into a ball?

Don't be shy... say something!
