I have a Jersey Giant who lays the TALLEST eggs I've ever seen. When I put them in an egg carton, I can't shut it! Because they dont' fit in in the carton, I usually don't sell them but eat them myself. And I've found that the white is extremely runny -- fills almost the whole pan, even when fresh.

What does the size of the egg have to do with the quality of the white? Any idea about what's going on?

When pullets lay eggs , or the first couple of each laying cycle, they are usually long and thinner, sometimes with a twirly/spirally-looking top to them.

They SHOULD (every chicken gives birth different and develops different...like womens labors, the kid comes out, just a little differently each time) get a little wider over time...maybe you just have an interesting egg to blow out for an Easter decoration!
