    Opened the hatch to find this incredible thing. Clearly, one of my hens deserves a raise!
    ...any suggestions on what to do with this thing?

    1. Crack it into a bowl.
    2. take a picture, post it on BYC
    3. Fry it, or do whatever you do with your eggs.
    4. Eat.

    Find the poor hen that laid that egg and get some Preparation H on her vent. [​IMG] She should be the one walking like it hurts. [​IMG] (just kidding about the PrepH)

    what a nice surprise. I had a RIR about 8 years ago and she would consistently lay an egg that was HUGE! The largest one she ever laid was measured with a sewing tape. Circumference around the middle was a whopping 7 1/4 inches. Felt sorry for the girl.

    I put it on ebay and advertised it as "worlds largest chicken egg".

    Unfortunately no one thought it was as interesting as me at the time. HA[​IMG]

    Is there such a thing as a triple yolker?

    Thanks for sharing Gamble. That is awesome
