The Pantry Quiz #32

Farm fresh eggs.

Multiple choice

I'm a huge fan of protein-based breakfasts, and most often that includes an egg or two. I'm so lucky that my friend Kathy brings me a dozen eggs every week, from her six types of chickens. I love the variety of colors. Even if you don't know beans about chickens, you can tell what color a chicken's eggs will be by the color of its:

1. Beak.
2. Feet.
3. Feathers.
4. Ear lobes.


Please leave your answer in the comments, and let us know whether you have this ingredient in your pantry.

[Last week's answer: From mildest to hottest: Anaheim, jalapeño, cayenne, Thai bird's eye, Scotch bonnet, habañero, Trinidad scorpion.]

Earlobes. and I hear that if the chicken wears cloisonne earrings, it will lay intricate Fabergé eggs!

Heard at the perfect pantry: earlobes. Why can't we do that too?

Earlobes. Cousin Martin, what a hoot! Wish I had thought of that.

I have absolutely no idea, but this might be my favorite question yet! (And I wish someone would bring me eggs.)



Chickens have earlobes????

Ear lobes!


Well, we get pale green shelled eggs from the RV-living chickens in our farm share, and I have seen them close enough to know that their beaks and feathers are not pale green. Pretty sure their feet are not either, but not 100%.

So I'm going with earlobes, as the thought of chicken earlobes, with Cousin Martin's earrings, tickles me today.

i'm going for the color of the feathers

Earlobes for sure! I always have eggs in my fridge, and shortly they will be coming from my own chicks...

I will have to agree with the crowd - earlobes - but really I feel like it is "none of the above"
