    we have a production red that lay's double yoker's once in a while
    this egg is so big it is 77.00 mm or 3.063 inches in length 1.984 in diamenter in width or 49.49 mm in width
    it's close to the record set in china but thought that maybe someone can beat it?
    this is the second layed since we had her the first one was even bigger then this one i wish i would have took measurement's
    it would have beat the record with that one!!!!!
    so does anyone record there biggest egg

    Quote:I don't have a clue, we only weigh them. We do get long eggs sometimes, but they aren't necessarily the heaviest.
