    Are you sure a goose didn't get into the coop? [​IMG]

    What are you feeding those chickens out there in the desert?

    What does it read on the scale for the heaviest eggs?

    I just feed them layer pellets but give them as much greens as possible.

    The heaviest marked is extra large at 2.5oz. This egg was 3.1oz. Pretty cool though :eek:)

    What breed of hen laid that egg?

    She's a Barred Rock. That was the only giant one. Her last two were just at large on the scale.

    That hen might have to take a couple of days off after laying that egg. [​IMG]
