    Went to collect eggs. First box had two large ones, second box had what I thought was a huge egg and two large ones, walk over to third box and see the biggest egg I've gotten yet, next to 4 large eggs. It measures 3 inches long by 2 inches wide and weighs 2.7 oz. [​IMG] Can't wait to crack it open in the morning.....any guess if it'll be a double yolker. Apparently the girls were thanking me for the "Happy Hen" meal worms I gave them yesterday. [​IMG]
