    One of my BOs is an overachiever tonight. She laid a 2.5 oz egg! I weighed a large store egg for comparison - it came in just shy of 2 ozs.

    Yep, the hen is fine. Never saw any unusual behavior from them today. Found the egg in the next box tonight.

    I got a 2.75oz monster yesterday. Doesn't really fit in the carton.

    I was joking with a friend that if she keeps having these macrosomia "babies" that she will need a c-section.
