    Well, I got three eggs today from my RIR's. Two were normal sized and shaped, and then, well, look at the pictures....

    The first picture is the two normal eggs beside of the third, and the next picture is the weird one beside of a ruler.

    If I can get to feeling better by in the morning, we'll be cracking it open, and I'll have my camera in hand!

    It was a double yolker!

    Here is a picture of what was in it:

    And here is a picture of it beside of a store bought egg:

    My fiance said "wow those look dark," so I cracked open a store bought one. The scrambled eggs this morning were soooo good. The fiance doesn't like the strong flavor of them, but I'll mix them with sausage for him next time. I'm just sooo happy to be getting my own eggs!
