Happy friday everyone.



A good day, if I do say so myself.

Let’s roll.

Somewhere over the pond in Willoughby, Northamptonshire, an bowling-pin shaped egg was laid by a chicken.  Naturally, the owner thought about selling it on Ebay.  I mean what else would you do with an egg like that?

Chicken lays bowling-pin shaped egg

An animal lover has found her chickens are game for anything after one laid an egg resembling a tenpin bowling pin.

‘I’ve done a bit of research and there’s nothing to suggest you should ever get eggs in this shape,’ said the 43-year-old.

Natalie Wiltshire said the bizarre creation was laid by one of her 20 chickens and reckons it is one of a kind.

The mother of three found it last week and was initially tempted to sell it on eBay.

‘I don’t know how much it would fetch but I remember a cornflake shaped like Jesus that sold for quite a lot of money so you never know,’ added the yoga teacher from Willoughby, Northamptonshire.

But the odd egg has proved such a hit with children Oliver, 13, Edward, ten, and six-year-old Benedict that she has been persuaded to hang on to it.

‘It really is quite an extraordinary shape. All I need now is another nine pins and a round one for a bowling ball and we have the complete set,’ she joked. []

Thanks to the Guardian for this picture from Pandi, Manila where these animals are part of a quarantine for the Ebola-Reston virus.  Sounds serious – if you had plans to visit Pandi, you might want to re-consider.
