Incredible and Edible

When I was a kid, I loved going to NaNa & Boppie’s and helping NaNa with her massive garden and feeding the chickens.  Although I must admit the chickens scared me a little bit.  It all stems from getting pecked in the forehead whilst trying to collect eggs.  My Mom tells me the scar on my forehead is from chicken pox, but I personally believe it’s from that vicious hen who tried to take my eye out!

Anyway…..after the eggs were collected, we took them to the cabin to be washed and sorted.  Nana had this little egg scale that we used to measure what size the eggs were.  I personally found this to be super fun!  Especially when the eggs measured as “extra large” because that meant they were probably a double yolker!  I was always pumped for my life when I got a double yolker.

I got to wondering, because I like random facts, what is the record for yolks in one egg?  I found multiple places that said 9, so I’m going to go with that.  Can you imagine the size of an egg that has 9 yolks in it?  Now that is an omelet!

So your fun fact for this Friday is that the most yolks in a single egg is 9.  For more fun egg facts…check out this link:  http://www.poultryhelp.com/oddeggs.html

Have a fabulous Friday!
