    It was 3.5 ounces from my Buff Orp hen Sunny. Next was a 3.25 the very same day from my Buff Brahma, Caroline.

    I don't have a scale, so I don't know how much it weighed, but it's a biggie!!

    O M G is that from a duck?

    Mine are just starting to lay: I weigh in grams and mine range from 48 to 51 gr. so far, they are growing though. I hope

    That comes out to be about 1 3/4 ounces so I need a few for a meal. [​IMG]

    Nope a chicken...the only ducks I have are bantam call ducks, so that would be even more amazing!!

    I think it was 3.15 ounces.

    I know years ago I had one far larger than any I have gotten lately. But nearly 20 yrs ago digital scales wheren't common in the kitchen and the only thing I had was one of those tiny little weight watcher style ones and I can't even remember what it was I just know it was larger than the last ones I got.
