    She usually lays large, round eggs....but this? Do you usually get the occasional giant one?

    I wish I had something to weigh it with!

    An ornament would be cool. I have some of my grandmother's old ones from the Ukraine...

    I have a kitchen scale that I use to weigh the Guinea Pigs and it weighs the eggs real well, too. The biggest we ever got was a 4 oz egg but most of my Jersey Giants will lay a 3.5 oz.
    You will see the big ones once and a while and most of the time they are double or even triple yolkers. Although I have only heard rumors of triple yolkers. I've never been blessed with one. Yowiee oweiee!
