    Okay so to my surprise today, my amaurcana/ee, henny penny, pushed out this GIANT egg. Now the one on the right is her previous egg, and now today she pooped out THIS monster. Anyone ever had this experience before? could this be a double yoke egg? I only have 2 hens, and no rooster. Thanks for looking and sorry about the low quality pic

    btw, if it has 2 yolks when I eat it for breakfast tomorrow, I will certainly post pictures.

    It is probably a double yolker or maybe even a triple yolker.
    Congrats, I got my first double yolker a couple days ago and it was a fart egg. [​IMG]

    My BA has given me 2 eggs like that in the last 2 weeks. They were both double yolkers. Have yet to see a triple yolker from my girls.

    Yes, a pullet can do that. Did you crack it open to see if you had double yolks?
