    I have an EE who is a new layer. She laid 4 normal size eggs and when I say normal I mean the size of my delawares eggs who has been laying for a few months and then she laid two monster eggs that were over 3 inches long. They looked like a duck or goose egg to me! I hope she keeps giving me big eggs and I wonder if they will be triple yolkers. Her first two were doubles.

    Is she laying a double yolker every day?

    I had a hen who would give me double yolker occasionaly, she would skip a day of leaving me an egg and the next day she give me a double yolker. I know they have to be hard on the hen...but they look cool in the skillet!!!

    So far her 2 eggs were double yolkers then 2 normal yolks then the 2 monster eggs I hope might be triples. We are going to fry them next Saturday when the kids are home from school and DH is home from work so the whole family can witness it if there are 3 yolks. I get doubles from my other girls all of the time too. Seems like every other egg I have fried has been a double.

    We got one of those too, not long ago. One of Vic's barred rocks laid it.
