...that is, when I remember.
Do you remember my tiny egg?
I promised pictures when I cracked it open.
I decided to have eggs for lunch today.
I didn't expect a yolk, but it had a teeny bit of yellow inside.
It actually looks bigger in the skillet than I thought it would; although it is just a 6" skillet.
The other egg was twins. I love double-yolks!
Yeah, I know it's a lot of butter. Doesn't the little one at the top look cute?
Well, not as cute as a baby chick, perhaps... but still kinda cute.
OK, I promised you an eggsplanation. To make a short story long...
We had four hens to start with. Once they started laying we had four eggs everyday. Then we got the babies. (Check some of my April/May posts.) This fall, they began laying. But we only get around thirty eggs a day, with almost fifty hens. I thought maybe lots weren't laying daily, but intermittently.
A friend was over last night and offered his theory. Some of our hens probably hadn't started laying yet, and this was most likely a first egg for one of them. He hadn't seen one quite that small, but said that a lot of times the first egg will be a lot smaller than the others. That's a relief! If they all started laying these Cadbury sized eggs, Mr J would starve!
