    I found a HUGE egg today from one of my RSL girls! Just stuck it on the scale and it is 4.0 oz (114 grams). [​IMG] I'm trying to get pics to come through from my cell (really bad signal here) and will post when they come through. I haven't cracked it open yet but I think the kids will be having eggs for breakfast tomorrow so I can see what is inside.

    I think your hen deserves a good treat and a week off from work lol. I'd be interested to see how many yolks the egg has.
