Attention to detail — 7 Comments

  1. Have seen colored eggs, but never one like this… is this the norm for her type or just her special detail work? Normal size, too? Reminds me of a fine white lace overlay on a (cough) eggshell color egg? Or maybe a work from one of the contemporary glass painters who apply layers of paint, then scrape off portions to reveal their finished artwork. Sometime, dye one after you finish with yarn to see how color affects it? Thanks for sharing this, Denise!

    • D > Definitely not the norm. Buff Orpington eggs are normally soft pink, without ’embellishment’. Sometimes there are spots of white – it’s an excess of the calcareous deposit that makes the shell, and may be a consequence of staying too long in the egg duct, but in our flock there’s only one hen who does this!
