    Yesterday we had a weak shelled egg that was cracked in the nest, probably from Mimi (who I think is a NH red). Today, she layed this monster!! I can't even close the lid of the egg carton! It weighed in at 100 grams, or 3.5 oz. [​IMG]

    Wow, we were getting some that size from one of our hens, they were so big it was crazy. She became egg-bound and the inevitable happened. [​IMG]

    My friend, who gave her to me, said she's done it before. Her biggest was 3.2 oz, this one was 3.5 oz.
