    One of my RIR's layed a huge egg this morning.
    Agatha proudly announced laying this one.

    I have gotten a lot of double yolkers.
    They are usually the size of a duck egg.
    Also I noticed that the blue eggs I get
    have a larger and darker yolk. Do you notice that? The yolk in a blue is twice the
    size of the yolk in a brown egg.

    Quote:It might be a double yoke but this hen is 1 1/2 yo and hasn't layed one yet. We do have a white leghorn that half the eggs she lays are double yoke, but they are always longer and no bigger in diameter the a regular egg.
