I was putting away some eggs yesterday and thought they were huge compared to the eggs in MD. It got me thinking – are the eggs in different states different sizes? So I want to have some fun. We’re going to do an “eggsperiment”, comparing eggs from different places to see if some places have bigger eggs than others. But I need your help!
How can you help?
Since I can’t travel across the country just to buy eggs, I need you to be part of the research team. Just send me a picture of a chicken egg from your local grocer/farmer/backyard/wherever. That’s it! I just need pictures of everyone’s eggs.
When taking the picture please put it next to a ruler or a quarter so I can compare egg sizes using the same scale. Here are a couple of sample pics to give you an idea.
Once you have your picture, fill out the short form below to submit your photo and that’s it. So easy, right? Alternately, you can tweet me a picture of the egg along with the egg size, city, state and a link to this post. Make sure you use the hashtag #wicprojecteggsperiment so I can see your picture!
Hey @WiCProject! Here’s a picture of a large egg from New York, NY! http://wp.me/p1raxl-4xm #wicprojecteggsperiment
