    Today was a 4 egg day!!!! Woohoo!!!

    But I don't know who did it. [​IMG] DO I have to stay in the coop all day to figure it out or is there another way?

    Am I the only one that doesn't know?

    Two of the eggs today were huge. I have never seen eggs that big. [​IMG]

    You will probably find that the huge ones are double yolks. That's what I have found. As for who is laying you would need to have them seperated or how about a video camera on those girls ?

    I don't know but I have 4 RR and they have been laying for about 5 weeks or so. About once a week I get a huge egg and it always has a doule yolk. IM new at this so don't really know if it's unusual or not.

    I just blamed my squatters...lol....the squatters got extra attention...i think that due to the fact that they were the only ones we could catch

    I have been getting 4 eggs everyday from my 4 RR' for about 7 weeks. None from my 7 banties. Same age.

    Today I had 4 regular size eggs and the cutest little tiny bantie egg ! Who did it out of 7 ? I don't know but I think I will spy on them. Although it is pretty cold in the morning here in Montana !!!!!
