We go from small eggs to Big Eggs
« on: March 16, 2009, 08:15:26 AM »
I found this egg before we went on vacation.  It's from Henny Penny, one of my easter eggers.  I call the first picture 'Ouch':



It fills my hand:



It weighs almost four ounces and is 3 1/8" long.

Wow! Are you sure a goose didn't pay you a visit?  I'm actually not kidding, I've had gray geese stop by our place in TN for just a day or so and lay an egg in the compost pile - twice in the last 3 years.

Yes, she's still alive   I know which hen laid it because I was in the coop when she did - she hopped off that nest really fast!  I just ate it, it was a double yoker.  Delish!

David, regarding it being a goose egg - it isn't, but do geese lay green/blue eggs?
