Pullets often lay big eggs like that during the first month or so of laying.

It's probably got 2 yolks in it and is fine to eat.

I usually don't sell double yolkers because they don't fit in the carton

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
