    The first picture shows it in an egg carton with the other eggs for the day. I took the pictures this morning. It's almost like there is a seam in the egg. I haven't cracked it yet, but could it be a "twin" egg?

    It is sure to be a double yolker!

    When we get big eggs I blow them. We paint them for Christmas ornaments.

    One of out 11 Barred Rock hens laid it. They are nearly 10 months old.

    I'm anxious to see what's inside, but I also hate to crack it!
