It's my fault, Bob. A squab is a small pigeon but I have confused it with a similar word referring to small fish & now I can't find the quote so can't totally sort the mess out. At some point I will find it & there will be this totally random post...I'm totally confused now. I need to make a list.
One of my smaller girls has laid several of the double yolk eggs I've gathered...so far she seems fine!Yes, she's a Golden Campine & should be laying a small to medium egg. Instead she has gone for the larger size. She is considerably larger than the Silvers so I guess it's ok...?
Pretty basket and lovely willow pattern plates!Some time ago @rjohns39 & @Grammy60 gifted me this lovely handmade basket.
Most of the people I regularly gift eggs to hang onto their cartons for me & I divvy the eggs up in such a way everyone gets a mix of large ~small, blue, white & brown eggs.
I recently ran out of cartons so have been putting my 3~4 dozen in the basket & just asking people to take what they can use from it. It has been an interesting exercise in people watching.
Who ever gets 1st choice usually takes all the biggest eggs but the 7th Day Adventists always take the brown eggs first. The guy with the daschunds always takes all the blue eggs ~ as does the chef. The small white eggs are least popular of all & whoever is last tends to get left with those.
They all taste the same.
Everyone throws the shells away.
So who has a preference?

Yep. I don't know any of them well enough to ask but I do think it's odd. And one only really needs a couple of eggs the same size for baking, so a mix shouldn't be a huge problem...Pretty basket and lovely willow pattern plates!
I can see wanting eggs of similar sizes (eg for baking) but funny that people would be so picky when you are gifting eggs!
