Betsy Lays An Egg!

Yep, Betsy the tiny buff serama has produced her first egg for me. Some how, I doubt it will make a filling meal.

She was so pleased with herself, too.


  1. A wind egg! Awesome. We save them as curiosities; they're just so alarmingly tiny. If she starts producing normal eggs before three weeks is up, they may still have rooster in them - we incubated serama eggs from a rooster who went to a new home (new rooster of a different color went in with the hens) and they were still his for well over two weeks. They didn't switch over to the new dad for a long time.

  2. Rooster sperm can live inside the female's oviduct for at least ten days. I am proud of her too; great job Ms. Betsy.

  3. That is awesome! So teeny!
