Good Eggs... No Yolk
Of the eleven birds in our shark cage, four are laying hens. Three are juvenile hens, and three are cocky-little-dudes. And one is our dear Lady Betty Orpington, retired layer.
We get good eggs.
We get interesting eggs.
That's no peanut by the way. I am not sure who is responsible for that little thumb-size egg. Maybe it came from one of the little hens?
For comparison: The brown one is a "Large" from Trader Joe's, and all the others are our own medium's from the resident chicas. Now you can see the peanut egg is adorably-silly small.
It had no yolk. Just egg white. Imagine if I could breed hens for this... teeny tiny egg white eggs for all the teeny-tiny dieters running around and subsisting on hot lemon juice and breath mints. Actually, I won't be surprised when industry eggs come out with just such a mutation. Oh, woe our obsessions.
