Why you shouldn't count you chickens before they hatch...

On Saturday, I cracked 16 of our homegrown eggs for an angel food cake. The recipe called for a dozen, but our eggs are still pretty small as the chickens are still just getting the hang of laying. I was separating the whites from the yolks through my fingers and out of the 15 eggs, 7 had double yolks:



...and one was a TRIPLE YOLKER!



Speaking of overachievers, Lily had a Dr, visit today. We knew she was a big gal, but turns out she is tipping the scales in the 90th percentile in all categories (height, weight and head circumference). Yikes! I hope she doesn't grow too fast. Hopefully she'll slow down a bit.

Lil' Lil and the other little chicks are absolutely over achievers. Brook how can you stand to seperate those eggs with your fingers??
