So today I was just going out, minding my own business, collecting a bunch of eggs, then suddenly. . . . I grabbed this enormous, monstrous freak of nature!!
It is obviously from a new Marans pullet, and just looks pale because the color has been sprayed over such a vast surface. . . (none of my Marans normally lay this pale of eggs) but golly I feel SOO sorry for the poor girl who had to pass this boulder!!
And to REALLY get an idea of size, here's it against normal eggs. . .
I've come a cross a LOT of double yolkers, freakishly big eggs (and not double yolkers) and so on. . . But nothing like this guy. I weighed it, and it was 6 ounces.
