Actually there are no feathers in this Feathered Friday post. I wanted to share a picture of three eggs I collected this past week. The bottom egg is a bantam egg which is normally a bit smaller. When cooking I typically use 2 bantam eggs for each large egg in a recipe. The middle egg is a normal large chicken egg. The top egg is an extra-extra-large egg. I feel a bit sorry for the poor hen who laid it.
When W cracked open the supersized egg, it had two yolks in it. These are rare but I usually see a couple each year. I read in a magazine recently that the chance of getting a double yolk egg is 1 in 1,000. I actually have a spot in the refrigerator for the eggs that are too big to go in a carton. This was definitely one of those!!
