This egg was laid today by one of our two White Plymouth Rock hens. It is truly HUGE!

The egg on the left is a Jumbo egg in a carton for Jumbo eggs. The lid won't even close because of the massive egg on the right. It feels like a hand grenade when you pick it up.



Left to right - Massive Jumbo, Jumbo, Bantam

Is it possible that it's one of the egg-within-an-egg oddities? I've been fascinated with those since I saw a few videos on Youtube.

I've never heard of that but surely will look it up! I'll definitely video it when I crack it open just in case.

Here are some more photos with size measurements. I can't believe that hen was able to pass this thing.

Here's a 3 minute video of the White Plymouth Rock hens, Doosie and Daisie along with our roo Louie on a cold gray winter day.
