    I found this monster egg in the nest box today. after sending my jumbo egg layer to my dads so he could start his flock, we don't really get huge eggs anymore (they do). but every once in a while we will get a monster egg and here is one. I think I need to give my girls some extra treats today, because someone really needs one.

    (the eggs beside it are the regular size eggs we get everyday, I think they are comparable to large size eggs)

    Wow! Make it a tiny treat, just in case she's sore.
