    Um...I have a bantam cochin and some standard orpingtons. My cochin usually lays smaller eggs. Today, she popped out THIS!!!

    She was the only one left to lay today, and when I checked, she was in the nesting box, laying...when I came back she was still in the nesting box, but I reached under her and pulled THIS egg out!

    Is this normal?

    I mean, the egg is almost the size of the chicken! How did she lay this without dying?!

    Anyone?!

    "How did she lay this without dying?!"

    Apparently with more finesse than you could imagine.
