  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.
  3. in grams its 96.6 and 3.10 ozt and 3.4 oz. All her eggs are this size. Only one yolk. had her now about 8 months. Sorry i read it wrong. Still its a big egg and don't fit in a egg carton.
