    When I went to collect eggs after work last night I thought duck broke into the coop [​IMG] --one of my hens, I'm guessing the White Leghorn layed an egg just over 3 1/2 oz!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks for letting me share--most of my friends think I'm nuts....[​IMG]

    LOL! I'm sorry, but I'm not that technologically advanced [​IMG] For reference, an extra large egg is 2 1/2 oz, which is what she usually lays.

    Don't little things like that just make your day?

    Yes, but I was actually worried about her, it is HUGE. She didn't lay the day b/4 -- I bet it is a double yolker [​IMG] I'd eat it tomorrow to find out, but I sort of want to save it to show off [​IMG]
