Dino Egg?

Earlier this week, we found a jumbo surprise in the egg box one morning. With our chickens relatively young layers still, their laying size isn't always consistent, but they usually are on the small size when they are odd. The egg next to jumbo is an average egg for us, about the large size in the grocery stores. Which ever hen laid it, deserves a medal for bravery and courage. Poor chicken...
It doesn't fit in the egg carton very well. After we are done marveling at it, we will crack it open and see if it is a double yolk or something else, like a dinosaur... :-)

That is a very big egg - poor chicken! I think you've been feeding your chickens too well - or a sneaky dinosaur stuck it there to to trick you.LOL. I've had big ones like that from time to time and the chicken that laid them usually was sore for a few days afterwards. I would be too!

We got one of those once. The poor girl didn't lay for a week. I think she was scared to.
