Tonight Marvin was fixing breakfast for Dinner and when he started cracking eggs he said "that egg is small it must be a banty egg." Funny thing I have never heard of that. So you guessed it I goggled it and this is what Wikipedia said
"Bantam hens are also used as laying hens, although Bantam eggs are only about one-half to one-third the size of a regular hen egg.
Marvin had worked in a grocery store for 15 years when we lived back in Nebraska and he said they sold a lot of them back then. I wonder if they still do. I have never seen them in the grocery store all though I never have looked.
I grew up on a farm and we had chickens and gathered eggs. The only thing I knew about eggs is you should crack them in a separate bowl before adding them to your dish as sometimes you can get a bad egg.
I learned something new today......
