Tiny Egg

Tiny Egg Aug 2015

One of the Ameraucanas laid her first egg in a Nest Box, just like a Big Girl. It’s the tiniest egg I’ve ever seen from a full-sized chicken. Just a tad bigger than a quarter. Appropriately enough, it weighs a quarter ounce. Ninja’s egg in comparison, weighs 2.5 ounces.

I’m not sure if Tiny Egg was laid by Ginger or Olivia. Not that it matters – it is absolutely beautiful.  However. If I get Tiny Egg on my breakfast plate, I’m requesting one of Ninja’s to go along with it.

    ha ha! I love those teeny first eggs! That one looks really small, funny! 🙂 Once I found a four little eggs that weren’t even from a chicken in the nest box, I think they were a dove’s. Sure made me think about that one at the first glance.
