    On the left a pullet egg, on the right the large size eggs I've been getting.
    In the middle THE MONSTER. Ouch that had to hurt.
    I wish I knew which one layed it. I'd kiss her.

    Yeah, let us know if it is a double yolker! I've never received a large egg like that. Though I've only had my chickens for 5 months. What are the breeds all these huge eggs are coming from???? I have Ameraucana and a few Wyndottes.

    My cuckoo maran lays one that size every other day and they are always double yolkers. Poor girl, she makes the most awful noises for about a half an hour before she lays it and is so uncomfortable. :aww
    But we sure do appreciate the double yolks. [​IMG]

    Quote:I will take a photo of the yolk (or yolks) later this morning when I eat it. The breeds I have are Black, Red and Golden sex links. The red sex links have been laying the "regular" sized eggs, while the others mostly still have pullet eggs. I don't know which girl layed it though. [​IMG] Today they are getting some yogurt and a bunch of cherry tomatoes for all their hard work:p
