Egg Variations

 In the past couple days we've averaged 5 eggs a day from our 13 pullets.  Every week it seems another hen starts to lay.  The weights have varied from 1 ounce (the left egg) to 2.1 ounces (the right egg).  The egg colors seem to be variations of light brown.

I'm really curious if the 2.1 ounce egg will have a double yolk.  That's the largest egg we've gotten so far - I felt sorry for the little pullet who laid that one!

Great line up of eggs! Usually double yolked eggs come from older hens.

Love it! Love all of their colors!!! I didn't consider keeping "egg stats" but after reading about yours, this is something I'm going to start doing!!! We have a hen that seems to be consistently laying a double yolker! Weird!!!
