    So I've seen hens lay a huge egg once in a while, but my poor girl is laying HUGE eggs almost daily. They are at least double size, a bit more really. They arent much bigger width size, but are crazy long.

    Poor girl. What's up with her?
     
  2. what breed is it? How big are the eggs?

    I have a sex link who is laying eggs about 5-6 days a week and they are dinosaur eggs. I'm afraid she is going to hurt herself laying them. I'm hoping for her sake they get smaller. I wonder if it's a side affect of the sex links being bred to be heavy layers. Her eggs are bigger then my 1 year old silver wyndots.
