    I could not believe it when I checked the egg boxes yesterday. My Ameraucana produced an egg of gigantic proportions! I put the egg with eggs from my RIR's for comparison. I can not even close the top of the egg carton all the way. That had to be painful for my poor girl. Sorry for poor quality. I took pics with my cell phone.

    Probably a double-yolker, too! [​IMG] My Black Sex Link hen produces these occasionally. Congrats!

    I have not cracked it open yet, because I keep taking it out of the refrigerator to stare at it [​IMG] I believe you are right though. It is very heavy, so I would bet it probably does have 2 yolks.
