    Interesting Fact: it also broke another egg... oof... also, Scarlett is my Rhode Island Red, one of my two pullets at the moment laying eggs. One more thing, it’s exactly 3 and a half inches long 6D24ED6E-4D55-416B-B6B3-BDC385FD70F9.png 3A95BE53-7B58-4279-9F2E-71421C1B1A61.jpeg

    It's likely a double-yolk egg, they're pretty common for a new layer.
