So today I was just going out, minding my own business, collecting a bunch of eggs, then suddenly. . . . I grabbed this enormous, monstrous freak of nature!!

It is obviously from a new Marans pullet, and just looks pale because the color has been sprayed over such a vast surface. . . (none of my Marans normally lay this pale of eggs) but golly I feel SOO sorry for the poor girl who had to pass this boulder!!

And to REALLY get an idea of size, here's it against normal eggs. . .

I've come a cross a LOT of double yolkers, freakishly big eggs (and not double yolkers) and so on. . . But nothing like this guy. I weighed it, and it was 6 ounces.

Holy geez, you need to find that hen and give it a hug and a pep talk. It hurts just looking at that.

Are you gonna open it up and see if theres a triple yolker in there??

The only time I got one that size, it was an egg in an egg. The inside egg was a Jumbo. The hen didn't lay again for a week and then only laid Large eggs for 2 weeks.
