    My two red star chickens have been laying eggs for two months now, today I went to the coop and found an abnormally large pale egg. Not sure if my chicken is sick or if this happens sometimes. I would love some feedback. Thanks.

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Even experienced layers occasionally produce abnormally large eggs. Those eggs usually have 2 (sometimes more) yolks.
