    Holy Mackerel! That had to hurt just a little bit! Does she lay one per day or that's just her third that size?

    This is the 3rd day in a row she's laid such a big egg. She laid one about 2 weeks ago and it was a double yolk...haven't cracked open these yet, but I'm assuming they'll be the same.
    There was a lot of squaking when she laid this today. But I think it's more because the bantam was still sitting on her egg and she's quite broody, so I think the squaking was the big hen trying to run the bantam out so she could drop that big load![​IMG]
