She popped out a egg so large it almost didn't fit in a standard large egg tray is this normal or is something wrong with her?

Is she a youngster or over 18 months? It's pretty common for pullets to lay some huge eggs and they are usually double (or more) yolked. I also have several hens around 2 years old that lay very large jumbo size eggs, but they're always singles, just huge.

Give extra praise & treats!

Barred Rocks lay great eggs. Usually large or extra large. We will get a double every once in a while.

I've got one or two 6-month old comets that pop out a huge, double yoker ever other day or so. I'll bring it into the house and tell my DW "Boy, that hadda hurt!".
