    This egg had almost no whites and a HUGE yolk. Makes me wonder how the chick would have done if I'd incubated it.

  2. My Jap's egg are like that. [​IMG] That's usually why I go for her eggs in the morning when no one is looking. [​IMG] Hello high cholesterol!

    Relax! Eating eggs doesn't give you high cholesterol.

    Maybe not high, but certainly increased. [​IMG]

    Before we had chickens I had a cholesterol problem so this certainly isn't helping. [​IMG] They're just too yummy... [​IMG] Luckily I haven't gone in for testing in the labs in a while so ignorance is bliss... [​IMG]
