    I have 4 Red Sex Links and one whiteish/grey hen (possibly a meat bird) and she is laying the most enormous eggs. I am getting eggs weighing 3.5 ounces or thereabouts every day . They are also all turning out to be dopuble yolkers!!!
    I don't have a question , I just thought I would post as I am so proud of my girls....first time chicken mum and all!!!
    She also didn't satrt laying til she was 8 months old either. She must have been saving up the big ones!!!!

    Mum to 4 growing children, 4 dogs, 4 cats, 3 Guinea Pigs , 14 Fish and 5 chickies. Oh, and wife to a vetry understanding Male Nurse![​IMG]

    I'm not sure about the size and all, but when my BA started laying a lot of her's were double yolkers to start with. They weren't SUPER huge or anything though. I have read on here that it's quite common for new pullets to have double yolkers at first. They kinda gotta get their stuff to work out the kinks.
