    These eggs were all laid either Saturday night or Sunday morning.

    I weighed them -

    From left to right -

    3.4 - from a barred rock

    3.35 - from a barred rock

    3.4 - from a buff orpington

    3.75 - not sure but I think a RIR

    The odd 5th small looking egg is a normal large buff orpington egg for size comparison.

    I am trying to remember what they had to eat that was extra the three days prior. I know they had some oats, rice, yogurt and boss - along with some salad scraps and egg shells and some 15 grain bread.

    I wonder what combo set off this production in my girls.

    WOW! Nice eggs, MissPrissy! How old are your girls that laid them?

    Something must have been in the air yesterday, b/c I collected 14 eggs from 15 pullets. I usually collect about 11 ...... sometimes a dz. I was like....Yipeee!!!!!

    My girls are young. Just pullets between 10 and 11 months old. I am getting a few of these everyother week.

    I blow them and we paint them for Christmas ornament. We are getting quite a nice collection these days.
