    I got my first HUGE egg today. It was bloody. You know it HAD to hurt.

    That's a quarter next to the HUGE egg. [​IMG] Is what I did. All my girls are accounted for. No life lost with this one. [​IMG]

    wow, nice BIG egg! [​IMG] Is the egg bigger than a large store bought? Hey, maybe double yolk! What kind of hens do you have?

    I weighed it. 3.6 oz! I had to put it in it's own bowl. I couldn't close the carton.


    I think it came from a hen that I just got from my neighbor. They're just red sex links or a mix of.
