    Hi,

    I have had two different BO's lay a similar sized egg on a couple of different occasions each. Both times the eggs were bigger than my Pekin ducks lay.

    I don't remember how many yokes the first one had as it was a year or more ago but this most recent egg was a double-yoker. I figured I might even find three but that was not the case.

    The first BO developed a severe prolapse and died from it. I'm hoping this one doesn't.

    God Bless,

    Wow that's big.
    I sometimes get big ones too (I've got Rhode Island Reds and Shaver Reds). My largest egg was (in circumference) 7-1/2 inches around the long way by 6-1/4 inches the other.
    ow.
