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.

Ouch! That was my first thought, too. Funny that she decided she was ready for work again so soon.

Chica, Chica, she's our gal! WOW OH WOW! I can't imagine an egg bigger than this one. That's amazing!

that's amazing!! What did you do with the egg?

Susan, after admiring it for a good while, and carting it about the neighborhood to show everyone, I finally cracked it open. There were two yolks and a lotta white inside, and it went into a massive frittata (with additional eggs). :-)

Hi Patty,

I have an americana named princess too! She is so dang sweet. We also are lucky to get a double yolk egg from one of our rhodes. I call it the golden egg. Thank you for following my blog, and I am glad you enjoyed reading the interview!
