The Latest Adventures of Chicken Mama!

I have 13 hens in my chicken coop, and on Sunday I got a Grand Slam-- 13 eggs! Organic eggs from happy chickens. Doesn't get much better than that!

Then on Monday I think an alien chicken invaded my coop. In addition to 8 regular sized eggs, I got a mini egg, a little larger than a robin's egg. I don't know how I'll cook it yet, sunny side up? If I scramble it, it would fill a thimble-- maybe. (Grin.)

The little egg most likely has no yolk. Sometimes hens will form shells around small particles, which make a tiny egg that's all albumen. Maybe in a few days, you'll get a double-yolked egg to compensate. :)

I cracked it tonight to see what it looked like inside. There was an amorphous little spot of yellow that might have been mistaken for a "yolk" of sorts, but mostly white (albumen) as you said.
