    [​IMG] Seriously, if I hadn't seen this I would NOT believe it! My girls, Lt Brahmas, have been laying since the end of August. We've had lots, and I mean LOTS, of double yolkers lately. But I'm almost afraid to crack this egg! Here's the WHOPPER... [​IMG]

    Here's an assortment of what we've been getting from 4 pullets... [​IMG]

    This is the WHOPPER next to the next-biggest egg we've gotten... [​IMG]

    It's too big for an egg carton... [​IMG]

    The girls are just now consistently laying 3-4 a day between the four of them. I've got another 9 Brahmas (Darks and Buffs) due to start laying the first of December. Can't wait to see what they have in store.

    Just had to share, I'm SO proud [​IMG] (like I have anything to do with it!)

    No, that is my fart egg. I just remembered that there was one of those big green ones in there. I kept the fart egg.

    I am going to keep it. Someone told me they dry out on their own without having to stick a hole in them because they are so small. I need to take a picture of that green egg from the sie - those suckers are HUGE. So is the bird that lays them though - her name is RoadRunner and she looks just like it. MEEP MEEP!
