Lay one, get one free

With a huff and a puff, and quite a lot of clucking, a Rhode Island Red laid the biggest chicken egg I’ve ever seen.


On the right, an average egg. On the left, the Rhodie monster egg. We’re  not sure if it was Athena or Aphrodite. I don’t remember seeing a look of pain, surprise or relief of either of their faces at any point during the day. So it was omelette for tea and lo and behold the monster egg was a double yolker. Is that lucky? Or a bad omen? As it’s the grand opening of Banceithin Farm and Holiday Cottages in two days time, I’m hoping it’s the former. And if it turns out to be the latter, maybe we’ll be having roast chicken for tea.
