  1. Yet another reason I don’t eat eggs. 🙂 Amusing little response to the question – nicely done. Thanks for linking it up!

  2. What a wild photograph! A real hands-on operation you have there!
    Love the way you got up-close and personal with the hen, Jan : )

  3. I like your description of the hen’s labor and how you made it like a woman’s. (I don’t often think about where eggs come from). I like the sculpture in your photo, too.
