    2 or 3 of my BCM have been laying for over a week now, I've gotten the smaller pullet eggs, a couple M//L eggs and yesterday I got this giant long egg! I haven't cracked it yet, is it likely to be a double yolker? Should I be worried about one that large from an 18-20 week old pullet?

    Ha! That is massive! I have no idea what's inside since my girls aren't laying yet, but that is one amazing looking egg!

    My FBCM laid those eggs too. Two of them... looking at your pic of all the eggs id think you had my pullet...
    I think its normal, i should say that my eggs were VERY dark for a week then got lighter..

    congrats

    Thanks! I'm watching the BCM eggs because I'm trying to see if there's a pattern in the darkness and spotting for each hen, or if they are all different. The sizes have been way different so far! The lightest eggs are from my Partridge Rock, who lays a L egg.​

    [​IMG] Poor little pullet! I really don't think there is much you can do about the size egg she lays. Maybe a pillow to sit on would be nice? [​IMG]

    It could also be an egg inside an egg.
