The eggs from moms chickens are lovely earth tones. Tan, brown, chocolate, olive, green, speckles, and even blue. I'm so impressed that chickens can make eggs in such natural colors.
Of course, mom's chickens live natural lives, and have the option to lay their eggs in a natural environment, like the recycling bin! This silly hen seems to be confused about where the nest box is.
Maybe it's more accurate to say these are natural light eggs.
Not only are the eggs naturally different colors, but they are a variety of sizes too. This brown one is a whopper! The tiny eggs are the ultimate solution to splitting a recipe that calls for one egg. Just use a half sized egg!
