    My turkens, 3 adults and 2 pullets (one a cross), are all laying long eggs that seem to get longer every day. All five of them are daily layers, with rarely a day off. I have a sixth turken, but she's not laying yet.

    Today, three of them have outdone theirselves and the longest egg layer Ivy hasn't even laid her egg yet today.

    Just had to share the pics. The carton won't close on these eggs.

    Normal "large" egg on the left, for comparison.

    Forgot to mention, they're not double yokers. Just single yolks, very big single yolks.

    Quote:With the turkens I think it's their long bodies that cause the long eggs. Could be wrong though. [​IMG]
