    One of my girls has been laying for a week now (my first eggs ever!), and her first 4 eggs were pretty small, but then a few days ago, she laid a whopper! Bigger than the large eggs at the store. I though that was the size she would regularly reach, but her last two have been small again. Has anyone had that experience? I would really like to get more of those big guys. And yes, I did question the sig-other to make sure he didn't plant it to tease me!

    I have the same thing. One or two of my hens two to three times a week give me a whooper and they are always a double yolked. My hens are 6 months. All of the eggs are gradually getting larger but these whoppers are great! [​IMG]
