    One of my ladies laid a whopper of an egg on New Years Day.
    This egg measured three inches long.
    I tried to put it in a "Jumbo" egg carton but it didnt fit. LOL

    Man, this must have hurt coming out.

    That is one huge egg we have never gotten a monster egg like that. Maybe make up a sitz bath and see which one jumps in it. Lol!
