    One of our ladies laid this MONSTER egg and I wanted to share pix with you.

    It measured 3 inches long. And was HUGE around its girth.

    Here it's surrounded by normal-sized eggs:

    Quote:We don't have a rooster, so no, it wasn't fertile. (Do twin chicks ever hatch? I hadn't heard/thought of that before.)

    After I took the picture I fryed it for DH. Very tasty double yolker.

    When I first saw the egg I kinda walked funny - sympathy pains for whoever laid it. I suspect which hen it was, but couldn't tell for sure, so the good news is no one had any negative consequences...
