Tuesday Dose of Cute: Cluck, Cluck, Cluck, Cluck. . .

Itty bitty chicken egg - FarmgirlFare.com

Every few months one of our hens lays an itty bitty, yolkless egg. It's the darndest—and cutest—thing.

Love chickens? Get to know ours here.

Chickens and eggs that came before:

© FarmgirlFare.com, currently laying about three dozen beautiful eggs a week—and hoping that the next time somebody goes broody she'll hatch out some hens. Three of our four most recently born chicks turned out to be roosters—and two roosters around here is already plenty.


  1. Dang roosters! Too many is NOT a good thing! I have two right now but they are still young, and nice! ;-) Cute little egg!

  2. Those must be the eggs they use for "No Yolk" noodles. Cute little thing and it looks as if it is round: huh!

  3. I find that happens around here when they are gearing up or winding down to lay each year (or when new hens start to lay). They are adorable!

  4. We've only had one of those hen toots before...

  5. Teeny, tiny -and adorable!!!

  6. ...and really beautiful! I love the colors and shapes.

    What will you do with these additional roosters?

    1. Hi Barb!
      I don't know if you remember when I mentioned in my Old-Fashioned Blackberry Crisp recipe post that the local general store has tables out front piled with stuff for $1? Usually I'm always taking stuff home from that bargain treasure trove, but this time we hauled the three extra roosters up there and sold them for $1. :)

    2. Oh Susan, that is just too funny! Who knew you could sell roosters at the bargain table for $1.00??? You've given me the best laugh of the day!!!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.
