OP you really need a hobby! It's lovely that you care, but seriously?
How does wanting to help a small creature in need translate to having no hobbies? What??? I'm still baffled at how you could confuse an old potato for an egg though! Bird eggs are hard and solid, reptile eggs are soft and leathery but still distinctly egg-like in form. Plus if you didn't have any idea of what kind of egg you had, how did you know what equipment to buy? All eggs have very specific temperature ranges and humidity requirements. There is no universal incubator lamp that is just going to incubate any egg to perfection. I still give you credit just for trying OP. You obviously care enough to try to help even a little egg and that's more than most people can say.
Also just for future reference if you have (or think you have) an egg and you want to know if it's healthy and alive, use a little keychain flashlight pressed against the shell in a dark room. This illuminates the inside of the egg and in a good egg you can see veins/embryo. It's called candling, and I am now picturing someone trying it on a moldy potato.
Aww. It was nice of you to care though :) you'd make an egg-cellent parent. And no good deed shell go unrewarded.
OP should've egg-samined more carefully. No but seriously, how could a potato be confused with an egg? And I would've just tried to somehow get it back up onto the nest instead of shelling out all that money -pun intended ((; But none the less OP tried to a good deed and what he/she did was sweet.
You're the embodiment of ignorance my friend!
If you believe enough, that old potato can still turn into a cute little sparrow. Or mild and bacteria. Actually, yeah. Most likely mild and bacteria.
I don't know why people are saying ydi... You cared for a (potential) unborn creature! You go man!
I'm sorry, OP, but I laughed really hard at this. (Thanks for the laugh, by the way. I haven't been feeling too happy lately, so it was nice to laugh.) I'm glad there are people sweet enough to care, though. I know too many people who would just kick it to the side or step on it just to be malicious. You did a good thing even if it wasn't an egg, because if it had been, that little bird would have had another shot at life.
