    This is not the largest I'm sure but I've never seen one this large. It was laid by my RIR this morning. She just started laying 12-21-09, she is 61/2 months old. The egg measured 3 inches long. I'm sooo proud.

    Last year I had 2 Buff Orpingtons laying large eggs like that. Both died of being egg-bound.

    If I were you, I'd keep a close eye on THAT hen.

    We've got a couple production reds that lay eggs like that, I always feel bad for whoever lays them, but we haven't had any problems with them. Hopefully you won't either. Good luck!
