    She laid one last year that was 3.4 oz and it was a double yolk. This one most likely is as well. I just can't imagine how she produces an egg that size in one day and then comes back the next day with another X-L egg.

    Here's my hen. I've gotten 6 big double yolkers from her. All the other times I've gotten doubles from her she wouldn't lay the day before or the day after. Not this time! One egg a day always jumbos I call her Queen B :) I really like your hen I want to add a couple white hens to my flock. Edited to add I have had her since November.
