Smile! Its a 2 'fer!!

So, I just had to share this because it was just too funny to me! (See when you live by yourself your sense of humor becomes unique only to you & your animals).
Tonight when I cracked open my first big brown egg to make an omlet sandwich, I got my first 2'fer & a big smiley face! Now I was feeling bad cuz these could have been twins & I debated on asking the dogs if they wanted them but no way!! I have waited to long to get these flippin' eggs!!

So. of course I wanted to share the eggs I have gotten this week, especially those green eggs! Most of the brown eggs I have gotten have been very small but today I got 2 larger brown eggs. I think the either the Golden Lace Wyandottes or Dominques (could be both also) are the smaller eggs, & maybe the Delewares are the larger brown eggs? I know the Araucanas are the green eggs.
Of course, when I asked the girls, they told me not to be picky cuz I should be happy that I am finally gettin' eggs! No argument there:)

Oooh, you got a green AND a blue egg! I don't think our Wyandotte is laying yet, but I'm not sure I could tell the difference between hers and the Rhodies'. It was a four-egg day here; I desperately need to do some baking, but it's a super-hectic week.

The GL Wyandotte that I used to have often laid quite large, light brown eggs and 2-fers were not uncommon. Occasionally, she would lay an egg so large that it looked like a goose egg! I used to feel sorry for her, when she did that....
