    I found this in the nesting box...looked around and found no dinasours lurking about. I have an EE girl that constanting lays oversized jumbo eggs....well she outdid herself today....she layed a Raptor egg! I weighed the egg and it tipped the scale at 3.15 ounces...it was almost 4 ounces!!!!! The carton is a jumbo egg carton and you can see the size difference between this egg and the normal jumbo eggs!!!

    LOL. Are you sure a turkey didn't get in your hen house? Does it have two yolks in it, I wonder? If not, you could use that to replace two, maybe three egg whites. Save it for cooking a dessert and you won't have to waste so many yolks, lol.

    Poor chicken's probably got a sore behind. [​IMG]

    I dont have any turkeys in the hen house!!!! Actually I sold my turkeys about two weeks ago! and they were free range and never went in the hen house! I know which girl layed this egg...she always lays eggs that are larger than the jumbo eggs...when I weigh them they are always past jumbo!
