Oh Nellie!

Note:  I used these photos on my Essential Oils Face Book page which is why they are tagged as they are.

Yesterday Levi came into the house holding this big beauty along with a few other eggs he'd gotten from "The Ladies".  He told us that this big one was an ostrich egg!  He was quite proud of his find.  The rest of us had one thought.  OUCH!!!

All I could think as my legs involuntarily crossed on their own was, "I feel your pain........... oh how I feel your pain"!  And then I hobbled out to the hen house (it's hard to walk with your legs crossed) and found the hen who was waddling around looking more duck then chicken and made her sit down on a plastic donut and wiped her sweaty brow and told her not to worry about a thing for at least a month.  I filled her fridge with casseroles and then left her to rest while I went and downed a bag of peanut M&M's in her honor.  It was the least I could do.  We 'girls' need to stick together!!

  2. Bwahahaha!!! She needs a sitz bath too. Poor girl. Amazing the variation in eggs, isn't it? Our gals have produced some wacky ones this summer -- not sure what all is going on there. Eggsentric.
