Chelmsford Chronicle 1950
Reported in the Chelmsford Chronicle in 1950.
- A six-month pullet at Canvey Island, owned by Mr Rodney A Hall, of Taranto Road, laid two double-yolk eggs, a single-yolk, a four-yolk and a 2 3/4 oz egg in seven days.
Ouch! What was she in training for the Olympics?
Also in the Chronicle in 1950
- Sixty-six eggs, hidden away by broody hens, have been found in one nest at Canvey Island, Essex.
Strange goings on by the poultry of Canvey. What were they feeding them on in 1950?
