There are many interesting egg variations that you see when you gather eggs directly from the chickens. When you purchase eggs you don’t see unique eggs such as double yolks, meat spots and funny shapes. I appreciate finding these odd eggs.
Last week we received this interesting egg:
Just for the sake of comparison, we have a white egg, brown egg and teaspoon there. The egg was pretty dirty but that is certainly not abnormal. The size difference on the other hand is pretty significant.
I didn’t eat this egg because the shell didn’t feel quite right and I figured it wouldn’t be too much of a waste to skip the egg the size of a gum ball. I did however blow out the egg shell and save it.
As you can see the egg was nearly all egg white. I’m not sure what happened but it was certainly a different egg!
There are probably a hundred reasons that I could list about why I am happy to raise chickens and have fresh eggs. After another recall I know that I’ve made a good choice in raising chickens. Make that raising hens.
The rooster on the other hand, he’s on the fast track to the dinner table. He and I do not see eye to eye anymore. More specifically, he attacks me every time I go near the chickens!! It’s not pretty. Biting and spurring me is a sure way to my dinner table. His saving grace…Jon. Jon loves him and he doesn’t attack him so I’m meeting protest.
That rooster better watch his back though, he’d make a lovely chicken dinner… I kid, I kid…kind of
This was such a lucky catch! I have edited the video to “the good part” because the original video is 15 minutes long (the music was a side thought, haha)! This is not a quick process people! I hope you enjoy this lesson in farming!
