    we're getting an egg a day from each bird, rir's. they started early by about two months by our basic count. we've always had one bird which lays larger eggs than the rest, but this mornings collection uncovered a monster.
    can't get over the size of this one, larger than the rest she's layed. can't come close to closing the box up. take a look!

    wow.

    the extra large egg I get occasionally is never that big, but the color is the same - I guess now I can give sympathies to my RIR.
    Poor girls.
