    I weighed one at 87g just the other day.. Just a hair over 3oz. Inside was a conjoined double yolk and a ton of white. It actually felt a little light for it's size, which was easily double that of a normal egg in terms of volume.

    My wife and I decided whichever pullet laid that one would probably have take a few days off afterward. [​IMG]
