Double Take

I thought I was seeing double when I found this in the hay…

What a whopper!

At first I thought maybe an ostrich had snuck into the barn. But no, these two eggs were laid by the same age chicken (7 month old Red Sex Link).  This is the first time I have had this breed, known to be the most prolific egg layer for brown eggs.

It didn’t exactly fit in an egg carton.

When I saw this egg I even wondered if we had found the elusive triple-yolker. But alas it was just a double. Made a great breakfast this morning! 🙂

    It bears repeating: double-owwie! I never imagined the potential of a TRIPLE-yolker. But the size of this egg makes me a believer.
