    Hello again~

    My RIR (Rhode Island Red) hen has for the last week or so been laying HUGE eggs and when I open them there are maybe two or three yokes. Is this not a good sign?
    one more question. My Buff Orpington laid an egg that was literally the size of a quarter. Is this bad as well?[​IMG] Also the same Buff Orpington (but different egg) had twins and I mean twins. Chicks, from the same egg. Scary right?[​IMG]

    My rir has been laying consistently a double yolk and an occasional triple. She is a new layer and I attribute her eggs to that...but if it continues she just cuts her egg laying life in half :/ her system should figure it out by 6 months or so... I hope...
