Not all eggs created equal

egg sizes So you think all eggs come in perfect elliptical medium to jumbo sizes? Not so.  There are often eggs with a slightly hour glass shape, jumbo double yolkers (ouch),  some with several shades of brown on the shell, and even an occasional shell-less egg. This egg, gathered yesterday,  is less than half the size. Young chickens lay these sort of as a warm up to “real” egg laying. It will have a joke of a yolk speck, but mostly egg white. Must be from those hens that know you’re on a diet!

P.S. All renters receive a dozen fresh eggs either “picked” for you or you can gather them yourself when you stay on Cloud 9 Farm.
