    This is a double yolk 3 7/8 oz egg. The thing is HUGE!!! It fills the palm of my hand!

    My question is what is that 'crack' line in the middle. It looks like it is a fuse of 2 eggs together.

    Is this normal? Should I expect it to happen again?

    Wow! That is one huge egg! It does look like two eggs fused together. Maybe your chicken "misfired"! I've had double-yolkers before, but never with the line, like that.

    Very cool! [​IMG]

    Do you know which of your chickens laid it? I'd guess it's the one whose eyes are watering! [​IMG]

    Ouch....really looks like 2 'wanna-be' eggs fused neatly. Hey, it happens in people.....Is it a double yolker? I guess double yolkers/large eggs happen occasionally, have not seen one with a distinct line in the shell like that though...Pretty neat!

    WOW! I had a great big one once from one of my Cornish Rocks and it was a triple yolker! Yours might be a quad yolker. [​IMG]

    Hey, is this part of "Candid Coopery<' it's s trick egg right - glued together - we can see the line.

    Just kidding, I wonder if you have an Emu leaving eggs behind.
