Our farm year ends January 31st. January is definately not my favorite month. I'm an agronomist by training not an accountant so my mind wonders off task quite easily. So, while I continue to work on year end book work here are some of my passing thoughts.
Last week #1 son brought in this egg from the hen house.
It may not look big in #1's hand but check it out in the carton with other Extra Large eggs.
It was a double yoker.
All of our chickens are laying quite large eggs right now. Usually in the winter the eggs get a little smaller but not this year. We aren't sure why this is but the hens have been spending more time outside than they typically do in the winter and the hen house has been warmer that usual as well.
All I know is that I feel really sorry for one of these hens because laying that egg had to hurt!
