Massive egg

We got this whopper on Saturday. It's the biggest egg I've ever seen. It filled Logan's full hand. It was only a double yolker, I thought for sure it would have 3. We've had double yolks in the past and they weren't nearly this big. I should have weighed it.

Don't you feel sorry for the chicken that laid them when you get them that big. We had a triple yolk once it was huge. I read in my poultry magazine that the most yolks found in one egg was nine. They had to be kinda small but I still wonder if that chicken survived that one.

Wow, now that's a whopper!!! Wish you had weighed it! My biggest was 2.1 oz, and it wasn't as bis as that one!!!

9 yolks! That's amazing. I do feel sorry for the chickens when I find really big ones.

Love the shot of it with the other eggs in the carton.

Whew! That's like a big baby...or in this case....big twins! lol!

They must have been big yolks and white, right? I would have guessed triple yolks, too.
We had a bunch of triple yolks with our first batch of hens, but none since then.

Oh my! I sure hope the hen is doing ok. You may have had a record size egg. It is HUGE!
