    I have a bunch of henny hen hens and 8 of them are RIR's, I have one black sex link, one giant cochin and a silkie bantam. Of those, who do you think is laying these giant honkin light brown eggs? The one in the middle weighs 4 ounces!

    LOL, no gooses, just someone who probably should be walking like a duck after laying that huge one!

    Have you checked to see if it might be a double yolker?? Every time I get eggs that are larger than usual, they usually turn out to be double yolkers!

    I don't have a rooster, so no baby chickies here! I have had two triple yolkers so far from my girls! I didn't break the egg yet. It's too fun to look at on the kitchen counter. Stay tuned..........
