    Look what I found in the nest yesterday!!! [​IMG]
    The brown egg is from one of my black sex-links and the white egg is a store-bought jumbo egg. (Sorry it's blurry...camera phone)

    That's the biggest one we've gotten yet!! [​IMG]

    Yikes!! That's a big one - did you crack it open yet? Wonder if it's a double yolker?

    My Black Stars lay a large egg. A good 3 oz egg that is a single yolker so don't be surprised if it is a single yolk though I have gotten a few double yolkers from the Black Stars and they were small 2.5 oz. This is one breed I think I will always keep. Great conversion and my customers love, love, love their large eggs!

    My GSL has been laying Duck sized eggs lately too! They won't fit in a large egg carton. I have 2 or three of them now I think.
