One of our girls tends to lay eggs that are larger than a jumbo sized egg. The egg on the left is regular size the one on the right is the dinosaur egg. Is that large of an egg normal?

Common for new egg layers on their first month or so, sometime also happens to an old layers. You’ve notice the line @the middle section of the giant egg? Sometimes that could be two eggs or yolks fused together, when you crack the egg open there’s possibility of 2-3 yolks in there.

Put something in the pic to give scale, like a quarter.
Good clear lighting, no shadows, would help.
Need more info, if you really want answer.
Age and breed of bird?
is this constant or just once in a while?
Is it a double yolker?

I think that might be a shadow?
