    Unknown Species - Help Please!

    Found an egg in one of the horse paddocks today... I believe its a Wood Thrush or Crow. Its light light blue with very few brown spots. I can post apicture if needed. Its the size of a dime-nickel. The embrio inside is about 1/4 size of the egg so how far along would it be? Its in perfect condition. Would it hatch? I found it in Northern RI at one of my riding barns. Please post!

    I can't begin to advise you on what type of egg it would be... if it's that small though, it probably is not a crow. My best advice would be to contact your local or regional Audubon Society and describe it to them. They will be able to help you. Good luck and let us know how it goes!

    Meanwhile, check out their website and post there if you can, if that's available. Meanwhile, keep the egg warm but not hot. Humidity is also a factor for an egg, but again, I don't have the knowledge to advise you there... It almost sounds like a Robin's egg, but I don't know. Try doing a little web research. I am a horse enthusiast too, but no horses LOL.

    Are you planning on taking care of it? I would've suggested just leaving it there as I'm sure the parent would've been back.

    If you do take care of it you need to make sure to turn the egg (not sure on how often) so that the embryo does not get stuck to the side of the shell. I also agree that you should call some sort of organization around you that would help you out.

    It was in the middle of a paddock where about 10-15 horses pass through everyday and would probably get runover one day. Im gunna call a local rehibilatator today.

    Here are a few pics of bird eggs, sounds like it could either be a Blackbird or Song Thrush by looking at them: http://www.burdr.com/2010/04/incredible-eggs/

    But yeah, I would suggest bringing the egg to a wildlife center, or at least giving them a call, they would know how to take care of it.
