    Maybe it gets easier the more she lays, but I bet she doesn't look forward to it.
    Are they double yolkers?

    [​IMG] I was getting those from my RIR about every 2wks, it would be a double yolker & she'd lay off the next day, then go right back. She gave me 2 of these in 2wks the last time & I was perplexed as to why she gave me an egg the morning after the 2nd big egg- made waffles & turns out the last big egg wasn't a double yolker, just a single yolk that was HUGE- it was equal to 2 large yolks, crazy. She hasn't done that in about a month now...
