Nine out of ten isn't too bad

    Despite the crappy Minnesota weather nine of my ten hens laid eggs today. Not too shabby. One of them is consistantly over achieving as well. I only have two white egg layers, a buttercup and a California white leghorn, and I get a huge double yoker a couple times a week. I think they're coming from Spot the leghorn, one of the smallest chickens I have. Check that jumbo out: [​IMG]

    Sounds like your chickens are doing their best to ignore winter!! I have a hen that lays enormous eggs like this too. It is a wonder they don't get stuck in there!

    Enjoy all your eggs and stay warm up there! :)

    [​IMG] Whoa, now that's BIG! To think that they'd still lay in the frigid weather? [​IMG]

    Yeah it's kind of crazy. I thought when I got the first one or two back in August that it was an anomaly. Seems to be the norm with that chicken though. I am pretty happy that they continue to lay as well. I go through lots of eggs!
