An egg mosaic

The eggs are coming in such variety of shapes and colors. The picture above shows the ones I just took out of the nesting boxes. They range from dark brown to almost white, and pale blue to rich green.  One of the green ones has brown speckles. It's like a mosaic in my sink!

One of the ameraucana eggs is just enormous. Look at it compared to a normal sized egg:

That had to hurt coming out!  Poor girl. One of the Ameraucana hens has been laying these huge eggs almost everyday. They are usually double-yolkers.
