    My three araucana pullets lay very tiny eggs. My hens lay decent size eggs.
    But today I got a different one...

    It might be double or triple yolk but certainly doesn't fit in the usual egg carton :eek:

    Pics on the scale of humongous, tiny and normal eggs collected today :cool:

    Those big eggs always annoy me. Where am I supposed to put that? :confused:,,,,,,,,,:lau

    Nice eggs. I always enjoy the daily egg gathering and seeing what I got. :)

    I'm betting that big one is a shelled egg inside a shelled egg.
    How old are your birds?
    Springtime there, hormones surging!!

    Not 100% sure about the hens. I got them at POL one year ago and I was told they were 16 weeks old, which makes them about 1y 4m old.

    The pullets are 7 months old, hatched 16 March.

    I will post a picture when I crack the egg open. I am very curious
