Thanks, but no worries about me eating it. It looked like antiqued cracked white paint. This also would be her first egg ever. I should have took a picture and posted it before I tossed it, it was quite odd looking. It's amazing how far you can throw one of those babies!  I mean eggs!

Don't you hate the mushy ones? I have also been pretty impressed about how far eggs can travel behind a stiff throw. Also been impressed by how easily they break in your hand when you're rearing back to chunk them!  :laugh:

The wife tells me the Amherst have started a couple days ago.
Reeves likely are as well. She don't go in there, plus the hens hide them well. I'll have to check when I get home Sunday (?).

I don't have any breeders but I saw that some gambels that I released last year have paired up.  Maybe I will have some wild gambels running around soon if it ever rains.  3rd driest season in 100 yrs. here in South Texas.
