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.
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.
Maybe a vampire scared Buffy…that would explain the ripple.
I want a cat that colour!
Interesting egg. Was it okay inside?
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?
