    Had to share...my BR laid an egg this weekend that was the biggest I've ever seen anywhere! She's been laying for about 4 weeks now and always gives us a nice size egg, but this one was ridiculous! All I can say is...OUCH!!

    Here are the day's eggs...the two on the ends are what the store would consider "small", the second from left is the size of a store bought "large" egg.

    I hope our Raven is proud of herself!! Poor girl won't be able to sit down for a week at least!

    Keep us posted as to what is insie when you use it, such as a double yolk or triple yolk.

    It was a double yolk...my son and his family were visiting this weekend and he wanted over easy eggs instead of scrambled, so I made the sacrifice and cooked the huge egg for him...lol... I wish I could have weighed the egg before I cooked it. I've seen double yolk eggs before but nothing like this...I just grin all over myself every time I think about it!

    I don't know how she does it! She lays a nice big egg every day, but this is over the top! [​IMG]
