Egg-ceptional Eggs

By Oakdell Egg Farms

Eggs are an important part of many of the Easter Egg traditions that families enjoy. Oakdell Eggs’ family farm in Cache Valley produces a whole bunch of eggs each year. Here are some fun facts about Eggs for the Easter season:

Fun Facts

  • A hen turns over her egg about fifty times per day to prevent the yolk from sticking to the side of the shell.
  • A hen requires 24-26 hours to produce an egg.
  • 30 minutes later, she starts that process all over again.
  • The older the hen, the larger the egg.
  • The larger the egg, the thinner the shell becomes.
  • White eggs come from white chickens and brown eggs come from brown chickens.
  • Place an egg in a bowl of water. If it sinks, the egg is fresh, if it floats, it is not.
  • You can tell if an egg is boiled by how well it spins on a countertop: if it spins quickly, it is boiled. If it spins slowly and haphazardly, it is not.
  • Eggs age more in one day at room temperature than one week in the refrigerator.
  • The shell has up to 17,000 pores, which the egg uses to absorb colors and odors.

  • Parents, remember to make it fun and fair for everyone during the egg hunts, and allow your children to hunt on their own.
