Size Doesn't Matter

Our allotment of backyard farm fresh eggs doesn't come every 24 hours as most people would think. In fact, hens lay eggs every 25 hours, and very seldom lay eggs in the afternoon. Theoretically (and under perfect conditions), the hens will continue to lay eggs for maybe a week and then skip a day and begin the whole process again.

I've noticed with Chicken and Pox the egg size does become smaller after the say, forth or fifth consecutively laid egg, but the yolks remain the same. I've cracked these eggs open and found the yolks to be bright, large, and beautifully golden – quite tasty in fact.

So size really doesn't matter. It all depends on what’s inside.
