    Well firstly, here's a photo of my first Easter Egger egg. I've been waiting SO patiently.

    AND - here's a photo of two HUGE eggs. The white one is quite large - larger than what "jumbo" eggs are at the grocery store. I can't imagine how the brown one popped out of the poor girl. It takes up my whole palm!

    Edited to add.....those are PULLET eggs! I wonder how big they're going to get when these ladies are full grown adults!

    I got one of those recently too from my golden comet. 2.75 ounces. And she is only 5 months old.
