    Them’s some fine lookin’ eggs. Well, some of ’em, anyway. Downwind from the nuke plant?

  2. naleta says:

    Hmmm, if you scramble that huge one with the tiny one, you should have about 2 eggs worth. 😉

  3. Paul Joat says:

    I’ve got the same issue, we have a few bantam chickens in the flock and most of the regular sized eggs get sold so we are left with the odd sized ones at home. Counting the eggs for a recipe is interesting, half, one, two and a half, three.

    To me bantam eggs are the best. People tell me there is no difference but I think they the tastiest.

  5. RCPete says:

    We’re starting to think about growing chickens. Dumb question: how many hens in your flock? (Assuming they’re all layers.)

    Of course, I have the not-a-flu, so I’m not going anywhere for a while.


  6. Joel says:

    In my experience at least a dozen, if you have the space. That gives you enough eggs for a reliably constant supply and to be an occasional annoyance to neighbors as you try to pawn off the surplus.

    Of course a dozen chickens need a lot of space, and chickens without enough space get stressed and stressed chickens stop laying eggs and sometimes become murderous lunatics. So if you’re pressed for space, maybe half a dozen for eggs – but they won’t always provide enough for a family.

  7. RCPete says:

    A half dozen might just work, then. For internal consumption, it’s just the two of us, though we’d probably barter with some of our neighbors. We’re in the outskirts of an odd town, quite literally in Indian Country. (If the Modoc Wars resume, we’d be toast.)

    I’ve got a bit of carpentry coming up, looks like. I have to cover the run; don’t want to feed the owls, hawks and eagles.

    Thanks for the information.

    If you get 16 on the 19th, go to town and buy a lottery ticket.

    There is a pattern there, what do you do on Thursdays that is different???????

To the stake with the heretic!
