I mean having a period once a month is hard enough.
Chooks lay an egg once every 26 hours. Not days- hours.
And (it's a bit gross but) if you think about the size of their vent (where the egg comes out) and the size of an egg it's more like giving birth every 26 hours than just having a period.
And that thought just freaks me out.
And then look at this:
That is two eggs from the same chook. The one on the left is her usual egg. About 65 grams. The equivalent of a three kilo baby? On the right is the egg. The egg weighs in at a whopping 120 grams. Wow. Like a six kilo baby!
It just made me cross my legs and go 'owwww!' when I saw it.
I had to go and get her some extra feed to commiserate...
