    Quote:Could be triple - we have never had one that would not fit in the carton - I cannot close the lid even tightly.

    If it is a triple you better post a pic. I had an egg that was just shy of 4 inches that I was sure was a triple but it turned out to be 2 full sized yolks. I dream of the day when I get a triple.

    We have had eggs that big and they have always had really large single yolks. They are cool and not so cool at the same time. They are hard to store, but we love to eat them!
