    It is a double-yolker. It means her internal egg laying factory messed up and released two yolks instead of one to start the process.

    That thing could even be a triple.

    Crack it! There may be double yolks..or an egg inside an egg.

    Theres nothing to worry about. Somtimes they lay these.[​IMG]

    Wow [​IMG] that's one of the biggest eggs I've ever seen - especially since I'm used to banties! I'm pretty sure your chicken is showing off.... though maybe not on purpose [​IMG]
