    Two days ago I found the biggest chicken egg I've ever seen. [​IMG]
    It is the size of a duck egg (we used to have pekin ducks so I've seen thier eggs).
    We've had some double yolkers before but they were not as big.
    I'm pretty sure it's bigger then x-large eggs from the store.


    What you think?

    My guess is double yolk, though I do get eggs that size, and they are all single yolks. This flock has never given me a double yolk, but some of my past flocks have.

    Your English is better than a lot of others on here! I see NO error in this post. I have some friends whose native language is not English. I have no trouble communicating with them any more, but they have a ways to go before they are writing flawless English.

    Are you going to crack it and let us know?

    Nice pictures. I like how you captured the eggs at different angles.
    Nice eggs.

    I wanted to take pics of my colorful eggs for a while, but thanks to the humongous egg I finally got myself to do it. [​IMG]
