The new image handler on this forum is better than we had before. It can now be bigger than 800 x 600 and it gets resized automatically but most cameras (even on phones) tend to take very large images. Software that will crop or resize images is fairly easy to come by. Off the top of my head:
The standard issue Paint application in Windows (desktop) will resize and crop
I had a free app called 'Image Re-sizer' on my Andriod phone a while back (comes with ads but OK)
Pix on Linux desktop (Mint) or Gimp (Windows or Linux) is a full blown image editor.

If you have any image viewer on your phone it probably will also crop and resize if you have a look in the menus etc.

Apple/iPad/iPhone is bound to have an editor built into the viewer.

or, you could PM one of us for an email address to resize it for you.

While I'm here - this is the first proper 'wind egg' we've had. Bet it was Mo!

I posted this link recently but can't remember where. All you want to know about egg abnormalities (and a lot you don't.) BTW, 'Wind egg' is the polite euphemism for fart egg, which I think is more evocative.

And yes, JaffaCake, you would expect egg numbers to go down in very hot weather. Good deep shade is essential for the chickens, and plenty of water of course.
