Pullet Eggs means Homemade Pasta in my house..

The young hens born last summer are coming online as layers..  First itty bitty egg, pullet eggs lined up with a regular large egg next to it.

Now pullet eggs mean fresh pasta to me.. its a family thing, my grandmother and my mother would see the fresh new pullet eggs and say.. its pasta time..  and now I do it 🙂

I hope you can see that the yolks are almost the same, but if you look at the white, the pullet egg has a tight small white, all the rest of the extra fluid and look at how much bigger the white is on the regular egg.

Now some folks go yolk only when they make pasta and then this is a moot point but if you make your pasta with full fresh eggs, the pullet egg is the egg of choice (well behind a duck egg, they rock it as a pasta egg )
