    Below is a pic of the egg I discovered this morning laid by one of my dark cornish hens--- next to it is a normal one--- I am suprised she didn't wake up the neighbors this morning with that one! [​IMG]

    PS --- DH measured it it was 2 8/10's inches long and just a hair over 3 inches around.
