This morning we woke up to find a magpie trying to crack one of our eggs (they must be some good eggs!)! We had to run into the garden and scare it off! Lets hope we don’t see him/her again!
This is one big egg that we found. It had a very thin shell though and broke when we brought it in!
For the last three days we have been getting two eggs. One from Stripy and one from another chicken. We think it is Snowy.
The new egg is lighter in colour and much smaller. It is very exciting. Just one more chicken to start laying.
We got a really big egg today. It was double the size of our normal eggs. Dad said it must have hurt the chicken laying it!
When mum cracked it open we found out that it had two yokes. We were really impressed. Here are are some pictures of the egg.
By the way the egg didn’t fit into any of our egg cartons.
Dad looked on the internet to see what the record was for the most yokes in an egg and it was 9 according to one website.
