They say to leave the egg and let the hen sit on it until she decides to abandoned so she won't keep laying eggs, but she laid it from a her "happy hut" hanging on the inside of her cage and it took a dive to the bottom of the cage and it is cracked on the bottom. Still, I can't help but be proud of my first grandchild, even if it was dropped on it's head. Chops does not really seem to care that her first child was dropped on her head and is destined for the compost; she acts like nothing happened. She looks like she has another egg in there but is not acting like she's going to lay another. I put her "happy hut" low in case she decides to bless us again tonight.
When my neighbor's cockatiel laid an egg, I caught him sheepishly "frying" it one day when I went over to talk to his wife. Now my kids want to fry this one. Can't decide if I'll let them. I put it in the spoon to show you how small it is. It's very cute.
