    Ok. I have gotten single yolks and Double Yolks. Then today When I gathered the eggs I found a
    massive egg! Much larger than the rest of them. Anyone ever gotten a triple yolk?
    I don't want to crack it just yet ( I wanna show it off for a while) I figured I would check
    with the wealth of Information on BYC. That way I can Keep it a bit.

    Maybe it is a egg within a egg. Never had one happen, but someone posted about it on here.

    I had a huge one that was 3.7 ounces, but others on BYC have reported 4 ounces and over. Have you weighed it?

    No I do not have a scale yet. They have only been laying for a little over a week.
    What do you mean a egg within an egg? Like 2 shells?
    That would be cool.
