    Okay I have a chicken that once in a while lays an egg the size of a goose egg or bigger. This morning I got another one and the size was bigger than the first I think. We used it this morning and it looked to be two eggs in one very large shell. The yolk were normal size.
    The first is the egg from today, the second is the egg from last month.

    OMG!!! Did you check to see if she was walking funny afterwards? Did she scream her egg song instead of singing it?[​IMG]

    I'd be watching that girl for future reproductive issues. That egg obviously did not pass easily. See all those body checks? She struggled to get that one out.

    Good luck with her.
