Hi there,
I went to collect my eggs from my 2 girls this morning, just the same as any other morning really, until I found MONSTER egg, it was huge,
My poor chickens eyes must of seriously watered at that,
Is this normal , now and again ?
What causes it?
Do I need to worry?:

Yes, it's normal! What a giant egg! Did you weigh it yet? My pullet that just started laying laid a egg that was actually normal size compared to her small pullet eggs and when i opened it up.....it had TWO yolks in it. I wouldn't be surprised if your giant egg had several yolks in it...

I haven't weighed it yet, ,I'm going to get some scales tommoro, then il eat it after I know it's weight,
Just hope little winnie will be ok
I checked her afterwards and she doesn't seem any worse for it

Yep - totally within the realm of "normal" - you will likely find it to be a double (or even triple) yolked egg when you do crack it.
