Four! Ouch!

Yesterday, our girls gave us FOUR eggs - YAY!!

The only problem was, Dolly decided to lay her first ever egg on the ROOF of the nesting boxes....which of course slants down to the her egg rolled off and landed on the ground, cracking the shell.  Her first one was the only one that looked like a first egg - it was smaller, and very long and narrow - but I opened it, and it was normal inside.  So, way to go Dolly!  Finally!  Now, lay them INSIDE the nesting box, please???

And look at Reba's egg....doesn't it look a little large?? guessed it - a double yolker!!  Our first!  Loving these home grown eggs!

My kids LOVE when the new layers start, because they love getting double yolkers on a regular basis. Love the name Reba, too!

I can tell when we have a double here, they seem to be pointed. Have you found that to be true? Just curious if I am off my rocker ;)

Bee Girl - Hello & welcome! I appreciate you stopping by! And thank you - we are enjoying every last one :-)

ADoC - you're making me hungry LOL

Tina - Double yolkers are way cool! And thanks - we love the names too. Named for all the oldie but goodie female country singers :-)

APG - Well, I think we all know you ARE off your rocker ;-) This was our first so we don't have anything to compare it did seem to be longer, but it was just bigger all the way around - hence the "ouch!"

Carolyn - Glad you are back! I just figured you had your hands full over your way - your daughter is just the sweetest thing!!
