    Hi There,

    We just got some Chantecler's who were not yet laying, I just found an egg that is MUCH larger then any eggs our other breeds have ever produced. I am curious if this is an anomaly or if this is what to expect. I have put it next to my largest Ameraucana egg for comparison.

    I also have one that I am questioning if it is a hen or a roo (sorry the pictures turned out dark) as it's feather's on the back are different then the girls and more like the two cross breed ones we know are roos... :( So much for my 6 egg layers.

    Thank you for any help.
