    Today when I was collecting my eggs I found a HUGE egg layed by one of my EE's. It is over 3 inches long and 6 inches around. Is this normal for her? Here is a pic of one of the "normal" size eggs she usually lays, along with one of the brown eggs. What do you all think about this? Is she having a problem, or does this happen sometimes? Should I be worried about it?
