    It is fun to get one of those. We had one a few days ago and the egg was HUGE! We've not had one of those for a lot of years.

    I believe so. I have a hen that has laid 2 doubles and she has only been laying since Oct. I got them in Nov. after she took a day off then it happened. the following week was when it happened the 2nd time, same way.
    Those were my 2 and only.
