Approximately what length of time is required after the yolk is dropped into the oviduct for the completion of the egg for laying?

Wow, Jerry that is too complex for me, BUT I will tell you how long egg yolk will stay on the edge of the cupboard if I drop one on the kitchen floor..... If I drop one, my cleanup results despite my best efforts would probably miss the drop on the cupboard. NOW, if my wife dropped one...the kitchen is spotless in a nano second!

Thanks for your game questions. I play along almost every day.

About twenty-four hours.

I can certainly relate! I know how long I'll be finding egg after I've dropped one. It seems like no matter how I clean I will later hear about the bit that splashed on the cupboard or the stove that I didn't get! I swear it's these new bifocals! Thanks for playing!

Jerry and Ralph, you need a large indoor dog. Then your kitchen will be spotless at all times. Mine patrols the kitchen and "mops" constantly while I am cooking.

Thank you Nora for the chuckle! I think you are correct. If I ever become the chief cook and bottle washer...a dog will have to be included in the job!

I agree, Nora! Our house dog, a black lab, passed away a few years ago, and we are almost at the point of being ready to get a new one. She couldn't hear me call for her a lot of times, but she could hear a bread crumb hit the tile from three rooms a way!
