    Here's one we got a couple of weeks ago. Got one close to it yesterday too. Must have had a dozen or so since July.

    Quote:I cringe every time I see one for the pain that must have been felt. All of these monsters have been double yolkers too. Today we got 7 eggs from 6 chickens, and I don't think they missed any all week. One may have layed late in the day yesterday, but we got 6 yesterday too. Did not think this was possible, unless they hid one from a 5 egg day and slipped it in there to make me crazy. Has this ever happened to anyone, because this is not the first time we've had this? Either our chicken math is off or something strange is happening.

    I got this egg it weighed 135 grams. 135 g = 4.76198 oz. It was an egg inside an egg and both eggs were double yolks.
