    My Buff layed another monster egg. It's been a while since I've gotten one of these. I was wondering why there was all of that comotion in the coop earlier ans she was clucking real weird.

    I get one of these monster eggs from one of my EE's every 2-3 days. She HOLDS onto that sucker until I put her in the coop after she pecks at my sliding glass door! I think she is telling me she's got this monster EGG and doesn't know where to put it. POOR thing...I've been giving her extra olive oil. [​IMG]

    We all seem to be having this rash of super-duper-jumbo eggs around here! Amazing the poor girls do this every day, isn't it?

    My RIR hen was laying some monster eggs, but now she is laying normal sized ones again.
