    Hi all: My Barred Rock is laying eggs that appear too large to pass. I was wondering if others are getting these very over-sized eggs too. The last one she laid weighs 121 grams and fills my hand. How does that stack up to your experiences?

    That's a huge egg. My 8 mo old cuckoo marans lay eggs half that size- 52-60 grams and I thought THOSE were big! My speckled sussex lay eggs around 45-50 grams. Is she having trouble laying them?

    I have a RSL that lays eggs that size... she will do it for 2 or 3 days in a row, before going back to normal size eggs. I can not put them in a regular egg carton.

    A few Years ago our Black Star would lay double yolkers that easily bottomed out my 100 gram scale. Like yours wouldn't fit in a carton and easily over 3.5 ounces. It's nice to only use one egg for a sunny side up on toast.
