EGG-CITING DISCOVERY!

This isn't the first egg I've found buried whole in my planters!

It's the work of a fox, who being very dexterous can handle, bury and dig up eggs without breaking them.

I'm just glad I didn't break into it with the trowel!



Where on earth it's finding the eggs .. but there's evidence to be found around the garden.



There's no farm nearby, or who keeps chickens? .. a neighbour must be putting them out especially for the opportunist thief.



It stores them away for the next time it's hungry.

I wonder where it's next cache will be found?

How strange! Maybe they are surplus eggs thrown out by a shop? Maybe there is a hen on the loose hiding out in your garden!!! x

We're forever finding eggs, usually with the lion stamp on them, buried on the allotments! Flighty xx

How strange, probably a wild or lost chicken.

I've found whole eggs in my compost heap. I'd always assumed that it was me. I compost our egg shells and egg boxes; and, thought that I'd left an used one in the box!

We found some eggs at our pond behind a large rock. They were turtles. I believe this is authentic! They got ready to be born and out they came.
