    One of our RIRs gives us 2 or 3 of these babies a week. They are such a nice surprise.

    She is 9 months old. Anyone know if she'll continue laying these or will she eventually stop giving us 2 or 3 a week?

    [​IMG] That's huge!!! I understand that they will usually lay double yolkers at the beginning of lay, then they usually stop. Lucky you though, getting so many now! [​IMG]

    Yikes! That is one big egg! Usually as the hen ages things settle down in her egg making equipment and she'll start laying a single yolk egg.

    Very nice prize! We haven't had any double yokers yet but there's still no comparison from fresh to store bought eggs; even Egglands best cage free don't taste half as good.
