    It is pictured beside her "usual" sized egg. It looks like two eggs fused together.
    Poor Bertha.........
    Great egg!

    That's gotta be at least a double yolker, you will let us know right? I had about 19 double yolkers from just 2 chickens, since May but that has slowed down now to just normal eggs.

    I have had one double yoker....but this one is even larger.
    I think I'll take another picture with me holding it.....SOOOO Cool.
    I never thought keeping chickens would be so much FUN!

    Let us know,,,,I had a HUGE egg one time that I thought for sure would possibly have 3 yolks and it had one! I really do not know how she passed it. I love those big eggs.

    I only got one egg today. The 2 RIR have just started laying. I am waiting for the other 30 something to start. The waiting is crazy!

    I am now getting up to 8 eggs a day from my 11 pullets...I am thrilled.
    I have added 4 turken pullets, but they are only 6 weeks old....they are so cute!
    I want to hatch some SLW in the spring......I love my chickens!!
