    must be a double yolker. One of my ameraucanas laid an egg like that i coulda swore it was the size of a goose egg. Thats gotta make them walk funny for a bit eh? As far as i know its normal as long as it doesnt happen all the time but then again im certainly not an expert. Is this the first time it happened?
