    We just got a HUGE egg. It was so big I weighed it. It's tripple the normal size. It weighs 3.8 ounces. I was just wondering whats the biggest one you've ever gotten?

    I don't know how much it weighed, I didn't have a scale at that point in time, but here it is.....

    I posted a few awhile back. I had 4 in one 24 hour period that weighed in over 3.3 ounces each.

    One more time...One of my golden comets, I think, Is laying 3 or 4 of these a week. So far, the biggest one weighed 4.3 oz. How long can they lay eggs this big and not blow out? Or does it not hurt them at all?

    I get 4 ounce brown eggs and white eggs quite often. I don't know who are laying them.

    So if a jumbo is 2.5, I wonder what mine would be!?

    I don't include them when I sell them, as they don't fit in the egg cartons.

    that's about the size of an egg I recently got. I don't have a scale either so no clue on it's weight, but it was the width+ of my hand, and I'm not so small.
    You wonder how they do it!
