Big Projects

We all have them, but some are particularly noteworthy.  Chica Loca continues to amaze and astound us with her laying prowess, and just the other day sacrificed more than we will ever know to bring her own secret project to completion. 

Standing tall at 3.08" (1.78" in diameter), and 95 grams, this is amazingly not a record setting egg.  (Sigh).  We were sure upon discovering it that we'd be quitting our day jobs and moving to Hollywood, but alas, it appears that the record was set by a little feathered gal up at Petaluma Egg Farm (egg laying capital of the world, you know) this past 4th of July.  Hers was 156.7gms, 2.3 inches in diameter, and 3.25 inch long.

Chica laid this monster egg yesterday, shown here beside the rest of the XL eggs she and her sisters lay.  I told her to take the rest of the weekend off but she insisted on going back to work today.

Chica, you are still a star in our book.

I hope all of your Big Projects are producing great results.  Ours definitely are.

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future...but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.
