    I think this is the largest egg we've had so far. I was shocked when I checked the nests yesterday. Wish I knew which hen laid it.

    I googled egg sizes to find out which weight is associated with which egg size.

    So, that makes it a "2XL" egg, right? [​IMG]

    Yep, a 2XL. The 1.5 oz. is from one of our Welsummers. I'm pretty sure the 5 oz. is at least a double yolker. We've yet to have a triple. I told DH to watch for the hen that is walking funny!

    Crack it open and let's see how many yolks! My scale only weighs up to 2 1/2 oz. What type of scale do you have?
