Suddenly, our Red Star stopped laying for nearly 2 weeks. Since she started back up, ovulation has been a little out of the ordinary.
The first egg was a (beloved) double yolker.
The second egg was the monster pictured. It's nearly 3 1/4 inches long, and 6 1/2 inches around. It looks like a double fused with a single. Or, maybe it's 2 doubles. I don't know; we haven't cracked the bad boy yet.
Until we reveal the cracking of the freaky egg via video, I want to know what you think.
How many yolks do you think are in Mabel's giant egg?
Have any of your chickens produced eggs like this, especially after a break in laying? Do you have any idea why this happens? I'd love to hear your stories. Or, share your photos with us on the Community Chickens Facebook page!
