    Not bow legged, but she sure is hungry. Wonder why?

    She always had laid extra large to jumbo eggs. But this one put them all to shame.

    I should put it next to the tennis ball again and take a picture. If was round, it would be the same size.

    Quote:I have a couple Red Stars. One lays the "normal" size (Large/Ex large) every day but the other lays, typically, a jumbo. BUT today.......WOW!!

    I LOVE giant eggs, and I call them Wombos. I've had about 3 that were 3.8 ouncers, but just a couple of days ago I got one that was exactly 4.00 ozs.! I could not believe it! From Blondie, my silver EE hen. She's the best layer, most consistent, and always lays XL or Jumbo eggs for me. Then, the next day, she laid an egg (I was shocked she didn't take the day off after the 4 ounce Wombo), she laid one that was almost perfectly ROUND! Weird. Aren't unusual eggs neato?

    Quote:They are EXTRA neato! The hen that laid it has not missed a day since she started laying in October. I'm kinda anxious to break it open and see how many yolks.

    In my little picture under my "handle" she is the one on the right.

    Are Red Stars Red Sex links? If so none of mine have EVER laid an egg that big.
