    This is the largest chicken egg I have ever seen. This hen laid a double yolker once, but this egg is twice the size of that one. She is a GLW who we thought was a rooster because she was so big - now she is the friendliest and lays the largest eggs- but this egg is beyond big- it's a WHOPPER [​IMG]

    Quote:Yes indeed- I'm looking forward to breakfast tomorrow and seeing what's in it. My guess is at least 3 yolks. By the way... it's in the carton with three large brown eggs.

    For the love of all who lay eggs, give that hen a special treat!

    I almost hope it's one of those rare, "egg within an egg,egg" I will take photos and post tomorrow after I open it. [​IMG] I'll be waiting myself [​IMG]
