More Surprises in the Chicken Coop

A couple weeks ago I posted about the wonderfully large, two-yolked egg one of our chickens laid. Well, last week, we got the exact opposite: a teeny, tiny egg with a yolk that looked like a little splash of yellow paint (and the membrane under the shell was so tough!). Here is a picture of how small it looked in my husband's hand.

Needless to say, it was useless--but it did provide lots of laughter.

And the hen who laid it seems to have finally figured things out in the egg laying business (knock on wood).
Hmmm... Maybe that lecture I gave her about pulling her weight and earning her keep did the trick...
