    We are have been getting some dinosaur (well, almost) sized eggs from one of our EE pullets. This girl (not sure which since I don't hang out in coop this time of year) lays beautiful blue eggs too, though most are normal sized.

    ok, ready? here they are: today's, yesterday's, a healthy sized black sex link brown egg, and a quarter.

    We are not doing supplemental lights or anything. The pullets are now 7 months old or so.

    should I be worried?

    I have one EE that lays a perty good sized egg. The rest of the girls manage Medium. But I think EEers are more "relaxed". [​IMG]

    I had two like that from one of my brown egg layers, turned out they were both double yolkers. She's back to normal eggs, though a bit bigger than large eggs.

    it's funny, we've had several double yolkers but nothing like these eggs. I am sure they are doubles but with the size a triple seems possible too (at least size wise). I can't wait to open them soon.

    They don't even come close to fitting in an egg carton.
