Ok, I tried to upload the photo of the biggest darn chicken egg that I found in the nest yesterday. But this egg is tinted and it is about 4 inches big and probably as fat around as my leghorn eggs. This came from a friends nest. She has arancana's, RIR, Barred Rocks, bantams and two Turkeys. Female and Male. I swear this has got to be a turkey egg. They are running together. What do you guys/gals think? I'm so curious. I put it in the hova bator just to see if the thing hatches. Its in there with the rest of my eggs. I can probably send a photo through PM, I hope. Tehe!

Over large eggs are generally double-yolkers.

There is little point trying to incubate it, esp as they taste so good

I'll send you my address


The recommendation to only incubate regular shaped and sized eggs is pretty well founded .... if you do try it, let us know hoe it yurns out.

I had a chicken egg the other day that was 4.5 ozs. It was a double yolker-I thought at least a triple but, no.
