    DH checked the coop this morning and he found a giant egg! Of course I took some pics and said "Yes, these are for BYC!" This is from my 5 month old RIR. She laid her first egg two weeks ago, now we get this. We haven't cracked it open yet, but does it look like it will be a double yolker? (I guess I'll find out for sure tomorrow!) [​IMG]

    The egg on the left is the size we've been getting for 2 weeks.

    Regular egg on left, then a "Large" store bought egg, then our giant egg on the right.
