Eggstra Eggshell for the Garden

While I usually save the crushed eggshells for my birds, I decided to share some with the garden, a few weeks ago, having already invested some long hours in the sun into what I hope will blossom into an attractive hedge. About a week later, while watering the plants and glossing over the pigmented shards of chicken eggshells scattered about, I suddenly became aware that one of those shell fragments was not like the others.

The bluish tint and the dimensions lead me to believe that it is a Starling’s egg. Indeed, Starlings abound at the new homestead.
