    Mine is 5 1/8 ounces. I'm wondering who holds the "record".

    Certainly not my freeloaders. [​IMG] Your egg was huge!

    I didn't record it Buster, and I'm positive it isn't as big as your egg.

    But the biggest I have gotten on the far right.

    Assume you mean a chicken egg but I once had a chance to pick up ostrich eggs! About the equivilent of 2 dozen extra large chicken eggs. Bigger than a mans hand!

    This was one of my biggest eggs from back in Dec. Didn't weigh it, I should have!


    This is one that I got yesterday, weighing in at 4.3 oz. I don't think that it is as big in dimension as the first egg pic but man they can lay some monsters. Compared to the banty egg I got yesterday.


    Your EGG takes the CAKE!

    The longest egg I had was 3.5" long. At that time I did not have a scale to weight it on. It was from my EE.
