Thanks kellyjennyI have 6 hen's and only one lay's a massive huge egg. I read up on it and it has something to do with their endoskeleton. It is larger than other hen,s. I have to put her on a calcium supplement because it does take a lot out of them. It's really not good for them to lay such large eggs if they don't have enough calcium more than the other chickens they get really sick. Here's a picture of all six eggs and trying to pull this baby out think about it it must hurt. The others are a little smaller because it's getting colder outside but usually they lay a little bit bigger I know this is long sorry. View attachment 2917386 View attachment 2917384
Interesting. What’s the thought behind this practice? I know with other livestock you select for desired traits—larger Loin eye for bigger steaks or chops, bigger breasted poultry for more breast meat, etc.Shipped eggs I would ask for the smaller eggs, they do ship better. If you are setting eggs from your own hens it is best to set normal to smaller eggs.
