An unusual present!

Today Lachie bought me an ostrich egg from his aunty's farm!  Wow it is huge!  It was vey heavy and the shell was so thick!  Lachie told me that you can eat them and make cakes with them and use them the same way that hens eggs are used.  

Lachie said that one ostrich egg has 22 hens eggs worth of egg inside!  He uses a drill to open them up and pour the egg out.  That's one huge omelette! I can't wait for Saturday's breakfast!  

I wonder what other facts we can learn about ostrich eggs? Can we compare them to hen's eggs?  

Friday was an exciting day! 


  1. If a drill is needed to open it up,that makes it safer to transport than hens eggs, less likely to crack.How heavey is it compared to hens eggs?

  2. Wow, that is an interesting present!

  3. Hi i'm Cameron I really didn't know that an ostrich egg was the size of 22 normal chicken eggs. I also didn't know that you could find one on your farm that's cool and awesome.
