The Unexpected Egg

Today I found an egg on the Manor floor!  What a surprise!

I did a double-take & thought, how did that clove of garlic get in there?  On closer inspection, it was revealed to be a little egg.  It was under the swing Raspy had been sitting on.  There is a very, very small possibility it was Atilla’s egg & had rolled over from where Atilla perches, but my educated guess is that Raspy is the culprit.

Even though the shell of the egg was thin, it was unbroken.  I had to see what was inside though, so broke it open to find a tiny bit of yolk.

Fortunately they have just had a few days with Calcivet in the water.  I planned to switch back to milk thistle today, but will continue with the Calcivet for a little longer.

Raspy is fine.  She has been quite lively the last few days, flying back & forth to the window perch.  Like her sister, she has also been searching high & low for a suitable nest.  I must check my sleeves for eggs…..

    I’m curious as to why you didn’t incubate it to see if it hatched.

      Hi Snailquake. Lots of reason why I did not incubate the egg… firstly, it was a surprise, so even if I had wanted to, I would not have had the equipment to do so. Also, the egg had been laid overnight so I’m guessing it may have been too late to incubate? (Just guessing here…..!) In hindsight, it would have been nice to try & see if it hatched & then I might have had a Raspy chick…
