For all my wailing about Trixie’s fart egg earlier this week, I held out hope that it was an aberration. Yesterday was a day off; surely she’d lay today. Surely it would be a normal Trixie jumbo. Right? RIGHT??!!

As I left for midday errands, I saw Trixie take over The Hideaway from Abby, and knew I’d have more information upon my return. As I re-entered the barn two hours later, I walked slowly to The Hideaway…

And found…



A pale, perfectly-spherical fart egg, not one inch in diameter.

So…sigh. You know, if she were at least inclined to be broody, she’d be earning her keep…

  1. It looks big enough in the picture.. until you look at the weight lol.

    Trixie being a buff orpington, should really go broody. It only makes sense!

      • I swear to you…I have a full sized Swedish flower whose eggs are like half that size. I was thinking the wild birdies were sneaking into the laying box.
