|another broken egg|
This past week, eggs fared better because we were both more careful, especially me. He did bring in one broken egg on Thursday. Then, today, Saturday!
When I went out, these are what I found. The top egg is Thelma, the six-year-old chicken. She needs eggs shells because this egg feels fragile. The hens tromp around on the eggs all the time, but I have never found a broken one in the nest that I can remember. This one looks like a chicken toenail poked the egg.
I am surprised one of them did not eat the egg. I have never had an egg-eater. I thought I did, but it was a snake taking advantage!
The pan in which I collected them is a star-shaped came pan.
I think Thelma's age is the cause of thin shells. Probably her body is not using the calcium she gets that is necessary for hard shells.
Monday, Thelma gave me a very sturdy egg.
Since Friday, I have run 103 temperature off and on. Of course, when I went to the dr today, my temp was 97. I had no chest congestion, so sinus pain. Saturday and Sunday, my chest was rattling. I was coughing, my head was stuff and ears hurt. I cannot walk without crashing into furniture and door facings. Friday night, the fever went up and down at least six times. I awoke with "chills" and horrid muscle spasm, so I feel like I have been beaten. My pillow, sheets, and nightgown stay soaked. It's "just" allergies!
I am so allergic to privit. Forget kudzu. Privit s the scourge of the South. I have a huge "tree" of privit.
I never sit down because I come in the house and fall into bed. Right now, I am sitting on the bed for a bit. If I have not been to your blog, I will do better after a few days.
