    My BR just laid this ginormous duck egg. It's 3oz, maybe a little more and more than double the size of normal. Of course it's a double yolker I'm sure, but it's even bigger than that. She's laid some pretty big eggs but this is a little insane. Poor chicken!

    Seriously though wonder if she'll keep it up or if this is just a special day.

    Quote:I have to wait for my husband to be home before I open it up. I'm sure it's a double. She's laid much smaller doubles. If it's a triple (which I've heard about, but never seen) I'll be astonished.
