    Got the eggs today and had 5 big eggs. This is strange because I have 4 buff orphington hens and 4 eggs from them today. Then 1 lighter color egg (bantam shade) from one of thee banny hens. Or 2 actually the 3rd banny is the rooster. They are black breasted reds. is it possible to get an egg this big from a chicken that small?

    Did you crack it? Maybe it's a double-yolked banty egg. The standards do it, so why not the little 'uns?
