    I checked on eggs after work and got these.

    Then when I went to lock everyone up my biggest BO was just coming out of the nest box singing the egg song. I thought great 13 for 13 for the first time ever. After I made sure everyone was locked up and safe I collected this.

    Yep thats a nickel not a quarter. So my question is is this 13 for 13 or just maybe 12 1/8 for 13.

    whatcha think Dan

    The way I see it is, even a small egg is still an egg. I say 13/13 congrats

    the problem is, it's too small to eat or sell, so i'd say 12 1/4 out of 13 [​IMG]

    Hey I'm with mgw, an egg is an egg. Too small to sell maybe, but not too small to eat.

    I don't know if it's big enough to eat. I put it next to a quarter but that just made it look really pitiful. I tried convincing dw that it was from one of the the little 12 wk old br pullets and I think she almost bought it.
