large egg


This large egg was in the nest yesterday when I gathered the eggs. If all the blue eggers laid eggs this size I would be more appreciative of the blue eggers. I had one of the hens that had spent a lot of time squatting in the pen the last day and I wonder if she was trying to lay this egg and having trouble. I thought she was injured she even walked funny and I thought she might have hurt her legs some how. She is the biggest hen I have I know she weighs at least 10 pounds. I will watch this morning and see if she is still behaving strange. the smaller egg is 2 1/4 inches long and the whopper is 3 1/4 long.

Must be a double-yolker.
