    A third hen is laying! Finally! but when I walked out, I found this whopper settled in next to the average eggs!
    Zirzes regular egg (Cross of Barred rock and Rhode Island Red):
    Santanas largest Egg (Khaki Campbell Duck):
    And Mercedes (I think) Eggpido! (Sister to Zirzes):

    What was your biggest egg? I am betting this is a triple yolker.

    Ouch! Poor hen [​IMG] So far all of ours are about the same size. We now have 2 layers, my RSL had a bawaaaaking fit today and I told my kids thats what happened. They didnt believe me until they ran out to find a fresh, still warm egg. I love how excited they get when they lay their first egg and my kids are now really excited about it too [​IMG]

    We have a Buff Orpington who has laid 3 of those huge ones since she began laying in August. When I saw one for the first time I was like [​IMG]. I am thinking I need to get a 6 pack duck egg carton because I can't close the lid on the Large egg cartons with one in it. My son LOVES to have them hardboiled, he loves those double yokers! [​IMG]
