    This girl started laying about a month ago and has been laying from 70-72 every day for a few weeks now but she outdid herself the other day.When we had it for breakfast there was only one yolk.She has set the bar high for my other layers now [​IMG]
    Here is the same egg among several large and xl eggs and a few tiny pullet eggs mixed in

    I planned to but my husband scrambled it and ate it..he forgot I wanted the picture.It only had one yolk I figured it would have a few in there.
    Edited to add we had a new layer lay a 75gram for her 3rd egg but it was a double yolker the next day..my chickens are confused and laying like crazy right now
