The Mysterious White Egg!

Up until now, we have only been getting brown eggs from our hens, but the other day, THIS appeared in my husband's egg basket:

We don't really know what to make of it. At first we thought that the Silkie hen might have laid her first egg, but this white egg seems almost the same size as the others. Silkie eggs are usually quite small.

Nevertheless, it still tasted really really good for breakfast! hehe
I can't wait to get more surprise white eggs!


  1. I just had this hilarious vision of one of the hens turning to the others and being like, "Hey you wanna see me freak our boss out? Check this out." And then I imagine them peeking around the corner as you pick up the white egg. I bet they can do it whenever they want but they like to save it for special occasions!

  2. Hello! I found you guys on Local Harvest. Out of curiosity, what are you feeding the chickens in the winter?

  3. Hi! We feed the chickens the same thing we feed them in the difference in food
