    My hens just started laying I got 5 eggs today and just went out to give the chickens some veggies and found a 6th in the nest box. It is enormous its like 2 eggs in one its even half and half in color. Here’s a picture with a normal sized egg. That poor hen.

    Not sure which of my girls layed it. But I cracked it open and it was only a double yolker (big yolks)not very egg-citing I’m afraid. I was hoping there would be something remarkable inside, or at least three yolks, but sadly it was only a big egg after all.[​IMG]
