I went out at 10:30 for my usual hen house routine. First I throw some scratch in the chicken run to divert the ladies’ attention, then I clean out the nesting boxes where they spent the night before (all pooped up), and then finally I collect my eggs for the day. The girls are like clockwork … the last one always lays around 10:15. Her egg is always warm – fresh right out of the chicken!
Anyhow … when I looked through the “robbing door” I realized … “We have a jumbo!”
About once every other week I get a jumbo, double-yolked egg from my girls. I’ve been running consistently four extra-large and two large eggs every day. But today I found this monster!
She bottomed out on my “Incredible Egg Scale,” weighing in at >2.5 ounces!
Out of the six eggs today, I had four XL’s, one large, and the queen mother jumbo. Can you pick it out of the line-up?
I set these big ones aside for my special gluten-free bread that my sweet wife makes for me. Besides, they’re too cool to just put in a carton and sell.
Now I have to go and give one of my girls a little massage … she deserves it!
