    Today I went to go collect a egg since she lays in the begging of the day and it is a total 3oz is that not normal for a pullet?
    she just started laying do you think its ok to sell/eat? here is a picture of my hen who had a 2.2oz egg her egg is the one on the right and my pullets egg is the on the left.
    any help would be appreciated[​IMG]

    Pullets often lay big eggs like that during the first month or so of laying.
    It's probably got 2 yolks in it and is fine to eat.
    I usually don't sell double yolkers because they don't fit in the carton
