    Wow and they are just single yolk eggs, huh? Hope for her sake she doesn't develop any double yolkers.

    One of my Polish girls laid one of those.

    I can't figure out where or how that thing came out of her!

    HUGE!

    Couldn't fit it into the egg carton, so we had to eat it right away.

    It was only a double-yoker (I thought it might be a triple).
