    Look what my EE surprised me with today. [​IMG] This has to be the largest egg I have ever seen come out of a chicken!
    The one on the left is a BR egg weighing 21.5oz and the one on the right is a RIR egg weighing 26 oz. I have no idea what the EE egg weighs. My scale only goes to 32 and it was maxed out!
    [​IMG]
    In this pic, the RIR egg is 30 oz. Until today, my RIR held the record.

    I have 2 EE hens and without fail, every single day, I get 2 beautiful green eggs. But never such big ones!

    You don't really mean "ounces", right? If you did, it should go in a record book [​IMG]!

    Are the numbers on the bottom ounces? If so, then what are the top bigger numbers?

    Answer deleted because I was wrong. The correct answer is in the post below. I didn't see the "doz." on the top row.​

    Ha! How funny....you read it fine. It is ounces on the bottom and on the top. The top numbers show you how much a dozen eggs that size will weigh (note the doz on the far left). The bottom number is the weight of each egg. What a cool scale!!!!
