Seriously?

We have 9 hens who lay single yolked eggs,
(see egg on far right)
one hen who consistently lays double yolked eggs,
(egg not shown)
and a duck who lays eggs.
(see egg second from the right)


On Monday, I changed brands of lay feed.

On Wednesday we were like 
"seriously?"

(see eggs on left)



Linking up with Farmgirl and Farm Friend Friday.  Hop on over and check out all the fun posts.

Holy cow! Those are some mutant eggs! (I LOVE LOVE LOVE brown eggs! Everybody says there's no taste difference, but I think there is!)

Oh my, that poor duck! Do they make suppositories for ducks? How do you know it's not the wheat grass leftovers?:)I enjoyed catching up an your recent posts! Our Max is doing his best at keeping down the rabbit population too! Poor bunnies. Have a great weekend, looks like a fun time on your farm!!!

Found your blog via another and I just gotta ask what in the world type of feed is it? Wow, that is just wild! We have had one duck egg that large and I did feel sorry for the poor girl! Oh and do you like that feed? I am mesmerized by the size!

Hi! Thanks for your comments. I am not sure if it was the feed or just coincidence. I changed from a feed store brand (Bomgaars) to Purina Flock Raiser because it was for both ducks and chickens. It didn't make a difference in the regular eggs, just the duck and the chicken that lays double yolked eggs. Like Sal had said - maybe it was the wheat grass : )

That's just crazy! Love it though!

Teresa said...

Amazing! You wouldn't think a change in feed could make such a big difference so quickly!
