Nest run means literally, as the eggs are pulled from the nest boxes. This photo is a shot of three eggs from yesterday’s collection. The shiny object is a quarter for comparison. On the left is a small egg from our lovely Henny Penny a Buff Cochin/Brahma cross. This egg would equate to a “medium” egg by USDA standards. The egg to the far right is from a Dominique/Araucana cross. This egg would receive the USDA grade of “Large.”
The egg in the center is huge! It filled up my whole palm. Sizing up more like a goose egg than a chicken egg I felt it was photo worthy 😉 The Egg in the center is an Araucana egg. If you look closely you’ll see I crushed the top left of the egg. Although it was very large, the shell was fragile. I was pretty excited to see what was inside, since I thought it may be a triplet…We do get twins on occasion. I’ve never seen a triple yolk egg though.
I guess I’ll have to wait to find a triplet. This tasty egg turned into breakfast 🙂 Hope your Friday is off to a great start.
