Hi,

I have 4 Rhode Island Reds, and once every two weeks or so I get one of these giant double yolk eggs. I read that it is not normal for chickens to lay these, but is it anything to be concerned about health wise (for the chicken)? Does anyone else out there get these? Thanks.

It isn't anything to worry about as long as she can pass it.
Sometimes they get lodged and the bird gets egg bound.
New layers reproductive tracts have yet to get in sync so some weird things happen.
