    I just went to one of the coops and my Golden Buff hen had just layed an egg, it was HUGE!!! My EE Julia had just layed a small green egg, and Coral, my Blue Andalusian had layed an egg this morning so... I brought them all in to see if the large egg would fit in my chicken egg rack for my 1588 Genesis Hova-Bator but it wouldn't really fit- pictures.

    Can it still be turned in the egg rack or not? Thanks~

    Looks like a double yolker!


    Give it a candle before incubating. [​IMG]

    So do you think it can still turn in the egg rack?

    I think it will still turn - not positive but think it will.


    If it is a double yolker you will need to watch it very carefully. Most develop well, but do not make it after day 18 or so. I incubated one, and sadly it (they cause there are two chicks in there) did not make it to hatch.


    Her usual sized egg - wow - is that poor girl bow-legged? [​IMG]
