Just thought it was crazy.At the start of the year my laying hens lay gigantic eggs and always wondered what would happen if i hatched one and this year had my incubator set up when i put it in i was just expecting to giant chick.the shell was too thick to candle so i didn't even know if it was fertile. bantam silkie, salmon faverolle, lakenvelder, big twin egg Most of the pics i have are of after dew to not having a clue. I thought it was strange when it started to crack on opposite sides but thought the chick was so big it was just bursting the shell. I saw the chick was having trouble so i pretty much cracked it out and when i got him out i got a surprise. Other guys ok looks a little cramped. The 2 big guys beside their egg.I had big eggs similar 2 maran eggs and 2 of these big ones Big single maran (not pure hens a cross) I would love to see if anyone had anything similar happen.
