"Curiousity".... Nearly Knocked Me Out

Okay, no pictures to go along with this event..........

Shenea, had two eggs still underneath her, the new chick is now 5 days old.

I'm thinking, what if there is a peep in the shell and due to the thickness of it, it cannot break out. I better investigate.............

NEVER, NEVER, break open a three week (plus) old chicken egg.............

Holy man, it broke alright, "more like it exploded", I stood over the trash can, "very gently" pecking at the shell ( not to harm a chick, if there was one in there) with a pair of grape pruners.

Don't laugh, they have a crooked tip much like a hens beek, okay...........

It only took two little itty bitty pokes and "Kaboom, it sounded like a firecracker", splitting open and spraying a really nasty, really~really nasty; smelling liquid all over my sweatshirt. I never knew, an egg could smell so bad......... It can, and it did!!!!

I had to move the trash can to an outdoors location, it stunk up the whole storage area.


So, .................. Let me say it again, Never open an egg that a hens has been sitting on for some 25 days.................
