Eggscellent! (sorry)

I bought some eggs the other day. Normally I peak into the package to check for broken ones but I was rushed and I didn't and I didn't even think about them until about to make food.... WOW! Are they not a beautiful sight? Seriously, I was really struck by them. They look polished!

I did a quick google of 'eggs' to find something interesting and found the following:
White shelled eggs are produced by hens with white feathers and ear lobes. Brown shelled eggs are produced by hens with red feathers and red ear lobes.

Chickens have earlobes?! Do they really? Jayne, my friend in windy Scotland has chickens. I will bug her now for photographic evidence... haha!


  1. Said friend's chooks do lay brown eggs and have red earlobes.

    They can give their ears a scratch as well!

  2. Oh Jayne, you must get a blue egg laying chicken!!!
