    Well we had our very first HUGE egg this week, presumed double yolker. Our Red Star who has now laid an egg 49/50 days since her very first egg [​IMG] somehow managed to squeeze this egg out. I am not entirely sure how she did it as small as she is compared to others in the flock.

    Here is the egg next to a store bought egg and one of our smaller eggs, and no that carton absolutely cannot close.


    Here is a picture next to the X-large egg she normally lays:


    Here is our now favorite hen the Red Star, front and center:

    Quote:Will do! I am sure it's just a double but wow that beast of an egg amazed us. Not to mention she still laid an egg the day right after (today) like clock work. We wouldn't have been at all dissapointed if she decided to take a day or more off after that one [​IMG].

    I had the same thing! That is a GINORMOUS egg! I called mine the Baby Huey egg! Baby Huey is a gigantic and naïve duckling cartoon character. That has to be a triple threat! Hats off to the gal who made it! It just looks so funny sitting in the egg carton! Kind of like the movie Elf, when Buddy is in the North Pole with the elves... Nice.

    And that's why I love my sex links! [​IMG] I know the heritage breeds are pretty but it's my sex links that produce consistently, always have BIG eggs and can charm the dickens out of me as easily as some of my fancier birds.

    Scares the poop out of me when they do that. The RSLs are rather known for it.

    Glad when they stop doing it, frankly. Ouch.

    any of you with the huge eggs have a roo in with your girls? You should try hatching one of the giant eggs.
