    I'm sure others have gotten one this big but, I was shocked when I saw it. I had to clean it off because it had a fair amount of blood on it.

    Here is another pic of it. On the right is the smallest egg I've gotten (I think a first egg from my sour crop girl), in the middle an "average" sized egg then the gianormous on on the right

    Not positive but, I think one of my black sex linked. I know that at least one of them lay double yolk eggs regularly.

    Surprisingly the monster egg didn't have any blood on it, and the hen was peppy right afterwards, I have seen blood on my RIR'S first few eggs, she is a small hen and lays fairly large eggs so far. That is one HUGE EGG!!!!
