    I recently raised 8 pullets into 8 beautiful hens and 5/8 of them have started egg laying. They've been laying for about 3 weeks now. I walked outside to a surprise this morning when a saw this monster of an egg in the nest. Which one could've laid it? I have Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rock, Buff Brahma, Golden Sex Links, and an Easter Egg. I put another egg beside it for comparison.

    It probably has 2 yolks! 2 yolkers are common in the beginning. Take a pic and share it!

    [​IMG]I would say your Barred Rock laid that egg.
    I get them all the time from my BR girls! We call them "bullet eggs".
    Most times they are pointier than that, too.
    Pretty egg, may be a double-yolker.

    Possible that its any of them other than the Easter egger. That said, if they are just starting to lay its probably not the Buff Brahma as they usually take quite a bit longer to lay than RIR's, Barred Rocks and sex links.
