    I thought I would boast about my chickens! I have 3 regiular layers, 1 black Australorpe, 1 scicilian Buttercup and 4 Americaunas and they have all started laying again after a long time in moult!
    In fact I have included a picture of someone's egg! I'm not sure who except it's not the Americaunas or Buttercups. [​IMG]
    The normal egg is 2.3 ounces and the big one is 3.6 ounces.

    Then by process of elimination, it would be the australorp, no?

    It's possible but hers are longer and narrower...it could be a regular layer who had a bigger supper the night before?
