    my hen. I have a red sex-link that has been laying an egg daily since the 5th of Oct. The past week or so they have been mostly double yolkers...they seem like such a large egg for her to pass:eek:. Is this normal or could this hurt her in the long run !!! ???

    They are plenty of people on here that get doubles often. I have not seen any post with people saying there is a long term problem.

    Maybe some with more experince can help.

    Huh must be Red sex links...mine has been laying an egg every day since Oct 15 and she has also been laying a lot of double yolks! They are just SO big! I was worried they would hurt her too if she keeps laying them. She doesn't lay double yolks every time but often enough for me to worry. Poor thing!
