Some Eggs Just Don’t Fit In


That’s a duck egg! Usually the biggest eggs I get come from ducks, though I’ve been getting a few big brown ones and lately I’ve been getting….

….one giant blue egg a day that is even bigger than the duck eggs!

    Nice egg! Love the color! Is it be a double yolker?

  2. Melinda in Washington State says:

    Meant to type, “Will it be a double yolker?”

  3. CindyP says:

    Someone is trying to make up for you not having eggs at all!

    Ooh that looks gorgeous! :hungry: You need an extra big special eggcup for that one! :sun:

  5. Tracey In Paradise,Pa. says:

    :fairy: Nothing better than fresh eggs!!How beautiful!!

  6. Jan Alexander says:

    How beautiful! Just curious though……. How do duck eggs differ in taste from hen eggs?

  7. Debbie Johnson says:

    :shocked: it must be from the crooked little hen, you know she is a little different :chicken:

    Every once in awhile, one of my hens (not sure which one) will lay a GIGANTO egg. Usually, it’s a double yolker…I love double yolkers. But, once in awhile the egg turns out to be a single yolker with a yolk the size of a pingpong ball. I kind of feel for whichever chicken it was because that must have been one uncomfortable laying session. AND, I too have the occasional egg carton with one side higher than the other. I love having chickens.

  9. Chic says:

    OUCH!!! I’d hate to be the chicken that laid that egg!!!! :no: :bugeyed: :hole: :hungry2:

    Lordy, Lordy,
    Just look at that stash of crafting supplies in that egg carton…
    Oh me, oh my….Blown-out duck egg projects and don’t forget the cute little banty eggs….and that paper mache egg carton…you can cut out the little middle thingys and glue them together and put a wire thru and paint and glitter and by next Christmas cover a tree in eggs and ornaments…..

  11. B. Ruth says:

    Oh me….I did miss the jar rings in the background…
    My childrens art class made pin cushions out of the older rusted jar rings…picture frames and ornaments…don’t throw those out when they get a little rusty…paint and glitter, paint and glitter…..LOL

  12. Angela P says:

    :sun: Arent they beautiful? My egg customers tell me they enjoy looking at the eggs just as much as eating them. You have to admit the gorgeous blues, tans and whites…I even get eggs that are a violet color…GORGEOUS….. :wave: Hi Rileys Mom :wave:

  13. B. Ruth says:

    Oh dear,
    I did miss the gallon plastic milk bottle…we made piggy banks out of those…paint the screw cap and dot for the nose…put on eyes…cork feet…and a twisted pipe cleaner tail…a slit in the top and a “penny saved is a penny earned”…LOL

  14. Mary says:

    :snoopy: Hey woman! That is a nice big egg!! I wondered how they tasted, but see you had already answered the question. Too bad you don’t get more…you cut cut down on cracking eggs!! Very nice!! :happyflower:

    My chickens sometimes lay gigantic eggs too. One of the easter eggers lays them and one of the sex links. Some are double yolkers and some just have one huge yolk.

    My Pekin duck lays eggs the same size as regular large sex link eggs. For a long time we didn’t realize that they were duck eggs. I sold them and ate them along with the chicken eggs, no one knew the difference aside from the slightly odd shell. One day I caught the duck laying one and realized. My picky husband was horrified that he’d been enjoying duck eggs!

    Oh and I also love gazing at my eggs, everyone thinks they are so beautiful with the bright mix of colors…I love the rainbow egg basket I get when everyone is laying!

    That’s one overachieving chicken! She’s looking for overtime :chicken:

  17. KentuckyFarmGirl says:

    Love the gigantic egg! Someone’s getting ready for Easter! I got two blue eggs yesterday. No it’s not my other Ameracauna, I got over anxious and went and bought 6 more Ameracauna pullets/hens and 2 Buff Orpington pullets Monday evening. I can’t help it! I’m addicted to chickens!!!!! I’m up to 4 roosters and 30 hens so far.

  18. Jenny W says:

    Ah, it can be overwhelming when our chicks exceeding our expectations. Recently, even in this freezing cold weather, we’ve been getting about 10 eggs a day from our baker’s dozen of hens.

  19. Jenny S. says:

    Mmmmm, I can’t wait to get chickens! Suzanne, will the female ducks lay eggs without a drake present? I didn’t know if they were like chickens in that way or if the eggs were all fertilized? Thanks so much! I look forward to reading your blog(s) every morning :woof: .

  20. Nancy in Iowa says:

    Arrgh! Are you sure you don’t have a lurking ostrich on the farm??? :dancingmonster:

  21. cgReno says:

    Ok, so thank you for the notes Suzanne! I didnt know a duck would lay like a chicken, and had no clue they were edible!!! Call me clueless in the City……my dumb, too funnny

  22. AA says:

    You should start saving the egg shells to make cascarones and you would have the prettiest ones for Easter. I never knew about cascarones until I moved to soputh Texas, but they are fun.

  23. Christine says:

    When we had chickens we had one chicken that would lay pinkish colored eggs. Now the guy we buy our eggs from we get green and blue ones. If you got them together you’d not have to color them for Easter. LOL :snoopy:
