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…..
