so i love having my chickens around, there entertaining, great for clearing out grub and bugs from the yard.
And the variety of eggs we get is fantastic, so many different colours, sizes and shapes.
But someone isnt playing the game!!!

oh and the three big ones I'm holding are from the geese

Fairy eggs are hilarious and I've only gotten a real one once. They usually have no yolk. I've gotten some DANG small pullet eggs though.

People here where i live in the Indian Himalayas are convinced those are rooster eggs. I guess it does no harm to think so.

I love variety too.  I have never seen a tiny egg like that thanks for sharing.   I have gotten several double yolkers from my newest hens, and someone is going above and beyond.

We have not been getting any double yolks this year but eggs with very big yolks from our chickens.
 This is new to us.
I did cook up a fairy egg for my son a while back...he was not happy.
