When I fed the chickens and ducks and collected the eggs this morning, I found this rubbery duck egg:
If you look at my thumb in the photo, you can see the egg squishing in.
Is this where rubber ducks come from?
Another blogger I follow, Christi, had a rubbery chicken egg not along ago. Check out her blog by the way, it’s awesome! Her stories of the goings-on around their farmlet are always entertaining, and I love the stick figure drawings used to illustrate them.
Rubbery eggs can be caused by low calcium (probably not our problem), stress (maybe – we’ve had a fox around, and thunder storms recently), or just weirdness (definitely plenty of that around our place!).
I also found a tiny duck egg this morning:
That’s a normal chicken egg in front of it, just for scale. I guess I’ll keep this one for next time I’m halving a recipe that requires three eggs.
Have you had any weird eggs lately?
