Our hens lay a beau­ti­ful vari­ety of eggs. The col­ors range from white to cream to brown to green to blue. The color is entirely depen­dent on the kind of chicken. The Pol­ish hens lay the small­est eggs in creamy white and beige. The Easter Egg chick­ens lay medium sized eggs in green to blue hues. The Red Star and Black Star hens, bred for pro­duc­tion, lay brown eggs. And they can really push out some mon­ster eggs!

Until yes­ter­day the largest egg I both­ered to mea­sure was 95 grams. Yes­ter­day, one of the hens pushed out a 98 gram egg. To put that in per­spec­tive, think about the jumbo sized eggs you can buy at the gro­cery store. They are only about 71 grams.  This egg was a full 27 grams larger than a jumbo egg.

You know what I say? Poor hen! It’s no won­der I hear honk­ing and yelling from the coop. That’s gotta hurt!
