ouch

big egg todayGathering some garden produce this morning included a rather large egg.  Our eggs are usually too large to fit into the egg cartons from the supermarket, but the double-yoker today is almost twice the size.  It must have hurt!!!
I have heard that hens have 6 minute memories (how they test this would be something worth knowing!).  Thus every morning when an egg pops out they must look around and say ‘What the heck was that?’  and ‘Ouch – that hurt!’  This explains the squawking each morning post-egglay.  Not only a squawk of wonder, but a squawk of pain followed by the promise ‘Thank God I never have to do that again, one of those in a lifetime is enough for me!’  And then, 6 minutes later, it is as if it never happened!
