Funny Thing!!!

So my youngest daughter is normally the one who collects the eggs in the evenings after the chickens had laid throughout the day. Last night, she was not available so my middle daughter went to collect them. Being one that is not as experienced with the mini farm workings as my youngest, she had no idea I had two hens sitting. Just so happens that one of the hens was off the nest, and she collected all the eggs that the hen was sitting on for the past two weeks. Realizing this a day later, after the eggs had already been placed in the ice box, I had no idea where the eggs had been placed amongst the other fifteen dozen. So the wife and went on a egg candling spree to find the few missing eggs.
I sure hope we found them all. If not, someone will have a surprise for breakfast.


  1. and that would not be a very plesant surprise either a half developed chick laying in the frying pan yuck

  2. Some say that the little extra protein is good for you.

  3. It's a cultural thing. We think it's gross, but some cultures think it's a delicacy, and even an aphrodisiac.

    No, I'm not kidding.
