    This is her thirteenth egg...most have been small to medium so far, but today she laid one that makes a store bought "Large" egg look tiny!!! I have an awesome picture of it, but no matter how hard I try, I can't get it to upload to this site. [​IMG]

    Also, I have one jumbo store bought egg left in the refrigerator, and Brownie's is the same size!!! I don't know whether to be proud of her or sorry for her! [​IMG]

    I haven't cracked it open yet because I'm still in awe that she actually did this...and on her thirteenth day of laying! If anyone can help me out with the pic uploads I'll try to post it again, but is this normal to have such a huge egg so soon??

    Thats awesome [​IMG] our rir hen layed a giant egg on her 4th egg a few days ago..it turned out to be a double yolker. I read on one of the forums that it is common for pullets to lay double yolkers because their bodies have not got their egg laying patterns prefected yet

    Starting pullets often lay these enormous eggs and quite a few doubles. I am always relieved when their system settle in and they stop laying those. As nifty as it seems to get those doubles, it scares the bejeebers out of me.

    prolly a double-yolker! [​IMG] if you've got kids, gather them 'round and see if you can't make a magic trick..
