Only Time Will Tell

Last night I thought perhaps we had a pullet egg, but no, that egg was definitely blue, and way too small.
The barn swallows are back, rowdy, and nesting like mad. But they have white speckled eggs. This sure looks like a robin egg. I'm leaving it in the nest to see if another shows up and also to see if the hens hatch it.

Oh! Yes. That is a golf ball. It is to remind the hens where to lay. Otherwise we find eggs all over the barn.
