    Ok I went to the coop to collect eggs and this is what I found:

    Left to right: Polish egg, Orp egg, Duck egg, and GIANT egg! It's the size of a small potato. [​IMG] I started searching for a dead hen after that but apparently she survived.

    Tom collected one just yesterday that I'd almost expect to be a triple yolker. Amazing feat these girls perform, isn't it?

    Wow! Wonder if it's one of those egg-within-an-egg ones?

    Quote:I'm wondering about that myself. I thought I heard something move inside of it. I'll let you know when I cook an omelet with it tomorrow.

    How much does it weigh? I weighed one at the post office today that was 3.9 oz. but yours looks bigger.
