    I collected these from my egg box today... [​IMG]
    The one on the left was a large by my scale. The two in the middle were off the charts on my scale and the one on the right was a medium. So, who wants to guess how many yolks?

    Here they are on the scale. They would have tipped it more but there is a metal stop that keeps it from going up anymore.


    I also have one question. Would the color of an egg change by the size that it is? I ask because I have never gotten an egg the color of the green large one. All of mine have always been the more blue shade. I still had one chicken yet to start laying and thought this might be hers but to be so large for a first egg?!?!

    Maybe it turned green because she didn't have enough blue left for such a big egg [​IMG]

    Double yolks. I get several of these a week from my pullets too. Sometimes I have trouble getting the lid to close on the Jumbo carton that I use for them. I do feel for the girls though, ouch!
