Show-off Chicken

L-egg is three inches long

Thelma lays huge eggs. The egg on the right is a rather large egg. However, it is dwarfed by the egg of the left. Every time, I hope that it will be a double yolk. Not so far. But, it is rather a large yolk.  If I could only weigh my eggs....egg weigh-ers cost too much. I only have 45-yr-old bathroom scales that really aren't very accurate.  

Yes, I was in awe of the huge egg and took a ruler and measure it...3" I don't have anything with which to weigh it. She lays an egg almost every day, but about once every ten days, she lays a whopper of an egg. They are never double yolk eggs.

Your turn
Do you have a hen that lays large eggs with no double yolks? 


  1. That's quite the difference in size!

  2. tlc, The difference in the size of the egg is about the same difference in Thelma and Fancy. Fancy is smaller, much smaller than Thelma and Louise. Still, I am astounded every time I find a huge egg.

  3. She loves you enough to lay you an egg every day. She must have loved you a little extra that day. LOL

  4. Awww, that is such a sweet sentiment. So, when I only get two eggs, there is someone holding out? LOL
