Chickens have seasonal affective disorder. OK, not really, but sunlight does influence them to lay more eggs. And a hen loves to lay eggs. I don’t know that the hen that laid this gargantuan thing was happy about it, though there were no demands for hazard pay, and believe me, to make certain, I listened at the hen house door a long time after gathering this super-sized egg. Happy little cluckers, all.
