    OK I'm not complaining about this, But my one of my Golden laced wyandottes is laying double yolked eggs that are the same size as 2 or 3large store bought eggs. They won't even fit in the carton! why are they so big?!

    How long has she been laying? I remember some hens I used to have went from laying the usual tiny pullet eggs to laying enormous double yolk eggs for awhile before settling into laying more regular size eggs.
