    There is a normal egg on the right. Maybe an ostrich snuck into the coop last night???!!! LOL![​IMG]

    Ive got a few hens that lay ones that big or bigger every day! They are enormous. It looks like yours is a double yoker. I will have to post some the big uns. The egg carton wont close with them in it.

    I love it. I had a couple of really large eggs too recently.

    Occasionally my ladies will be extremely noisy in the morning and I'll go out and find one of those. Almost always a double yolker.

    I'd probably be noisy to if I was passing one of those. [​IMG]
