    The smaller eggs is a "normal" egg from my young girls -- about 10 grams (theirs are 10-12 grams). The big one is also from one of my young girls -- TWENTY grams. Ouch, ouch, ouch. I hope it was one of the bigger girls that laid that one, at least!

    Well, that beats my 18 gram egg laid this afternoon by a young White. (Double the Yolk)
    Have to track that gal and get her into a separate pen to make sure those yolks don't continue in my case. This one was longer than rounder.

    Yes I took a phone Pic but last time he tried to load that thing onto my puter, it crashed, so not going to happen. Besides, it was delish.

    LOL Yep, it is absolutely monstrous. If I had to take a wild guess, I'd think it is one of my whites, too. They are the biggest of the bunch. For the sake of the others' backsides, I hope it was the biggest girl in the pen!

    I get some double yolks from time to time, but today I got three from my chickens that have only been laying for a month. The one that just started laying lays the biggest. I have mutant chickies.[​IMG]

    They think its Spring here. Happens with young pullets, then they should straiten out in a week and never happen again. If not, we know how to cull. Rozzie doesn't care if they lay double yolks or not, so her birds are good to go. And no my Whites are not that big yet, so I feel sorry for my gal.

    My Pear tree has pears forming, the size of grapes? I have new growth leafing out on trees? I am going to loose some plants this year, I bet cause it is going to freeze for a few nights here this week.

    Does a 17 g and a 4 g count. If I weigh them together I get 21g, hay almost 22g. And from an adult pen of Golds, the only pen still laying. It froze last night and is going to tonight. But not where they are. Spoiled brats.

    She says, will ok I'll lay one for ya, but don't get your hopes up, cause your getting the minimum output for the maximum input. [​IMG]

    Them are little cuties. I like how you bring them in and give them blankies when its cold outside. I don't do that.

    Maybe that's why she gave me a 4g egg for my breakfast, huh. Holding out for a blanky.
