    Last year one of my girls laid a golf ball size egg fart. As round as one too! Now today I go to gather eggs and this is what I find on the ground.

    Then last week my husband told me that he cracked open one of the hard boiled eggs I made and the yolk was WHITE!!! Tell me that isn't weird!

    My grandson and I are going to pick out another 3 eggs from a BYC friend tonight. We are so excited!!

    I would think that would be so much easier to lay than a golf ball!

    I suspected it might be my new Red that laid the torpedo. After my other grandsons see the egg then we will crack it open to see what's inside.

    I have wondered - do you need to have a rooster to get double yolks? I have 4 RIR's and no rooster - have never had a double yolk.
