    So I posted a huge egg I got from a pullet yesterday, it was her second egg. Her first was a bit long but pretty good sized and then she layed the big one yesterday and guess what? SHE DID IT AGAIN lol, thing looks like a super jumbo lol, it is pictured next to a BSL egg that would probably be the equivalent of a large store bought egg, as you can see its quite a bit bigger than all of my other eggs.

    I need to find my scale to weigh it, it literally feels at least double what the "normal bsl" eggs feel like

    it's fairly common for birds to lay "double yolk" eggs when they first start out. Growing up, we had one that laid double yolks her entire life. She wore out earlier than the others because it is harder on them.
    One of my birds from last year laid them off and on.

    Well you guessed correct guys and gals, DOUBLE YOLK lol. I am actually kinda excited since its actually my first double yolk ever. I think once I get all set up with the incubator if she continues to lay them I will try to hatch a couple............................
