    Have you tried incubating it? It looks like it is a double yolker and held in the oviduct a bit too long by the looks of it. She may lay that type for the rest of her life. How old is she?

    not very old yet, 8-10 weeks? she was picked out of a group of young ones that the lady guessed were about 7 weeks old. she has been laying for around a week maybe a bit more. I'm gonna toss them in the incubator, maybe end up with quailzilla haha. i have to imagine its a double though, just cant bring myself to break it! lol.

    She is still young then so there is a possibility she can tone down the size of the egg or be prepared for breakfast eggs [​IMG]
