Eggstra Small

I had a teensy surprise when I opened the lid to the laying box the other day.

I squeaked when I saw it.  We don’t have any hens that typically lay such small eggs, so I was surprised when I saw this itty-bitty nugget.

We average about 5 eggs a day and they are all usually the size of the one on the right.

Upon wondering if it was possible for the egg to be yokeless, I did a google search and discovered that not only is it possible, but they have a special-not-so-appetizing name for such eggs.  They are affectionately referred to as “fart” eggs and are perfectly edible.  I don’t think I could have ever predicted me using fart and edible in the same sentence, but there you have it.  And you-are-so-very-welcome for that useless tidbit.

Aren’t you glad you checked in today?!

    This is too funny! If Conrad loves his “turd” mom then a “fart” egg will send him over the edge! LOL! 🙂

    • Shockingly, I have not told the kids yet. I will in the morning. I am preparing myself for hearing “Hehe. Fart egg. Hehe.” repeatedly all day tomorrow. Should be fun!
