See a Chicken Lay an Egg!

Hey!  Wanna see a chicken lay an egg? It comes right out of its bum!  No?  Wanna see my bum?  No?  Wanna see me get bit by a chicken?  Well you’re in the right place for 2 out of the 3.



No chicken was harmed during the making of this video. I, however, was.

    LOL!!! How did I miss this?!?!?

  2. fred says:

    I have never filmed my girls doing that. Great video!

    • Karen says:

      Thanks Fred! Not a great shot … I happened to catch it on my iPhone, but you get the gist of it. What kind of chickees do you have? OHOHOH! And you’re in Halifax!!! I’m trying to figure out how cold tolerant these gals are gonna be. Is your coop insulated or heated? How cold does it get in there? Please don’t tell me this is your first winter with them and you don’t know ’cause I’ll cry. A lot. Big bulbous tears. ~ karen

    Ooooookaaaay..not the video to show those people who are afraid to eat fresh eggs!

  4. Nicola Cunha says:

    I love playing your videos as my husband is falling asleep and listening to him giggle! thanks!

  5. lori says:

    how cool was that!!!!

    I loved the talking bum! Did you know that if you had grabbed that brand new ooey gooey egg up and slipped it into an egg siz box, like, say a matchbox and let it sit there for a bit – you could turn it into a squareish egg?!

    I think I love my poultry too much…not the wrong way…just too much.

  7. marilyn says:

    that was so cool! and funny! way to go cuddles you are a star or at least your bum is. and had your chance.

  8. karenagain says:

    LOL at the Hinterland music Brenda. So, obviously the chicken came first… right?

  9. Brenda says:

    Fabulous video Karen, I was waiting for the Hinterland Whos-Who music to play.

  10. Liz says:

    OMG I grew up on a farm and did not know that there was only ONE exit for both poo & eggs (I must not have been paying attention during butchering). I actually didn’t even believe you so I googled it. That would explain the need for egg washers….

  11. Sandra says:

    That is hilarious and fantastic!

  12. Lindsay says:

    I’m sick and this is the only thing that has made me laugh all day. Thank you for this Karen…and Cuddles!!

  13. Jill says:

    That was AWESOME! Thanks for risking life and limb to bring us this nature documentary, Karen!

  14. Dainty says:

    Now I remember why I don’t like eggs so much.. Haha!

  15. Paulina J! says:

    I have been pecked by a chicken before for going after her chicks. Not fun. If you are not careful they can peck a piece of skin off! It was fascinating to watch this. I thought it would be a slower process, but she popped that sucker right out. Pretty cool!

    Do you have a scar to show off? No?
    I spent a lot of time as a youngster with Granddad’s chickens but they never showed me how it was done!
    Thank you cuddles but it’s lucky your shells are tough!
    Maybe that’s what happened to Walnut? Difficult birth?

  17. carey says:

    that is SO funny! as i’m watching that vid, i can hear my own flock clucking and laying. and btw, my rhode island reds are mean as hell, too! never cross a rir!

  18. Leann says:

    THAT does it… I’m trading in the three dogs for three chickens. The only productive thing THEY produce is pooh… and hair to sweep… and kissy faces… and snuggles… and ball fetching… rats – talked myself out of the chickens! GREAT flick!

    Totally appreciated this; reminded me of when as a child,my Nanna and I were cuddling in bed one morning and a chicken came in the bedroom, hopped on the bed and laid an egg right on our feet…we giggled the whole time but she was single minded and just got on with the job!

    You, and these chickens, rock!
