    One of my hens has got to be walking funny and roosting sideways after this!
    I candled it and it looks like it has either 2 regular and one tiny yolk or one regular size and one HUGE yolk.

    Happy Birthday! And what an egg!

    I had one that big recently, and I thought for sure it had 2 yolks in it. When I cracked it, it only had 1 yolk, but it was quite a bit larger than a golf ball. I've never seen a yolk that big, it was really wild!

    I put the penny on one to show the size lol! Thank you for the good wishes! I can't decide if I want to break it and look,,, or try and hatch it! I've never tried to hatch a multiple yolk egg,, I know some have succeeded but I hate to see them form and then die. I'm too soft hearted that way.
