    Because this is WAY TOO BIG to be a duck egg!!!

    I found that monster egg this morning. I got out the measuring tape and it is just a tad over 3" long. That HAD TO HURT! The other eggs in the picture are a quail egg and a regular duck egg. (And that is a quarter in the photo...not a dime!)

    This was from either one of the 3 welsh harlequins or from my runner.

    I am betting this is a double yolker. Good thing my incubator is completely full of quail eggs or I might be tempted to try and hatch it!

    Quote:I tried hatching one once. On day 39 I opende it since it hadnt hatched, turned out I had one full formed chick that had been smooshed against the egg and killed by the undeveloped yolk beside it [​IMG]

    One of my Muscovy hens, Jr. Mss, who is the smallest of the flock, laid a egg that was GINORMOUS [​IMG]!! It almost looked like a goose egg. Sadly my mom broke it open before I could take a picture of it, or measure it [​IMG].

    However, when she broke it open it had a TRIPLE YOLK!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And it helped make the best Duck Egg Casserole I had ever tasted [​IMG].
