    My Penny has laid a few double yolkers, seems like every week and a half she pops one out. But this one takes the cake! [​IMG]

    E-Bay! i saw someone else on this site had one so i had to get one. They are very accurate. My elder sister remembers my grandmother had one similar.

    And, that egg feels like a rock!

    Have you cracked it yet? Is it a double or triple? I get 2-3 doubles a week. Yesterday, I put a sawing tape mesure around it and it was 6 inches round. It made me hurt thinking about it.[​IMG]
