  1. I have this hen that lays an egg that weighs 2 pounds and 2 ounces. Got pics and don't know how to upload here. I used a tape measure almost 3 inches long and string around the egg and it comes out 7 inches around. lol! Almost the size of a baseball. Wondering about her health?
    I added the pics in gallery

    2 pounds and 2 ounces?!?!?!?!

    This pic looks like 3.43 ounces...tho it's kind of hard to read, I'm assuming ounces.

    Still seems heavy for the size.....break it open and see how many yolks in there.
