So I have this GSL, she lays the huge egg every day, and the last I egg I had gotten was Tuesday. No egg Wed, Thurs I went out, no egg...I noticed she was in the corner of the run acting like she was pushing to lay an egg, which I thought was odd because she always uses the nest. Watched her for an hour off and on, she kind of went about her day. No egg still Friday...Saturday morning we went out to have coffee/watch chickens in the morning and she was doing it again, walking around real slow with her bum down to the ground, and I could see an egg when she would push, then it would go back in. I thought, great, another egg bound chicken...she was hanging out last night with her wings dropped looking pretty pale. I was sure that was it and she would not make it. Went out this morning, she was still looking pretty bad. About an hour later my son went out to get eggs, and brought in this egg---it is absolutely hers I only have two tan eggers and the other is laying fine. WHOA!!!!! No wonder it took so long to lay, She looked quite perky this afternoon, poor thing I don't know how she was able to pass this.
Weird thing is....only one yolk! A very big fat yolk. Poor girl! I have had some huge eggs, and even a triple yolker that was really long and narrow...but this one takes the cake so far. (width wise)
