I found these two eggs in the hen house, on the same day and in the same nest.
I wonder if these chickens feel any egg envy?
The blue one (I know it looks white in the photo, but it is actually light blue) feels like a baseball in my hand, while the small egg felt small and hard, like a rock.
I cracked them open and was not surprised to get a double yolk in the big one which turned into a great omelet. One of my Araucana chickens lays those big ones once or twice a week or so and all I can say about that is ouch.
But I don't see such small eggs very often and it was interesting to see what was inside of this one. Not much of a yolk as you can see, but Penny thought it tasted just fine, though. She is the happy recipient of our "odd" eggs.
