    I'm not sure which of my hens was working so hard today but HOLY Chicken eggs Batman!! [​IMG]

    I have one Buff, one Australorp, 3 Reds and a black banty...I'm guessing it was the Australorp... but maybe not? Couldn't find a Guiness World Record for largest chicken egg - did find plenty that appeared larger. I don't have a kitchen scale to weigh in oz so I'm not sure of it's weight... I'm gonna crack it open later and see if it is double or triple yolked...
    She's a beauty! but OUCH!!!!

    I'm a twin and have b/g twins who help me collect the eggs - that was the first thing out of their mouths "LOOK! Twins in there!!"

    my brother has a friend that one of their chickens layed an egg that went 142 grams. that's 5.09 oz. quarter pounder with cheese. it turned out to have a full shelled egg inside another.
