    Stands out, doesn't it, in that pretty mix in the egg carton? Let us know how many yolks if you don't decide to hatch it!

    She was roosting Miss when I found it I had actually thought that the kid's had left a toy in the coop. It was getting dark outside. Maybe I will update this post in the AM with a video of my poor limping EE. [​IMG]

    Quote:I have a blue EE that lays a HUGE egg like that once a month. I call it a "freak egg"- I swear, its the size of a goose egg. I'll see if I can dig up a pic...
