One of our road island red hens laid this egg yesterday. It's HUGE!! I haven't cracked it yet so I'm curious to see if we have a single/double or perhaps a triple yolk?

That is a big egg.... Our Red Stars laid huge eggs but not that big, they were very often double yolked. I don't think we ever had a triple yolker, even when the eggs were larger they were still usually doubled or just one huge yolk.

I'd blow out that egg and save it for posterity...hang it on the christmas tree or something. You poke a tiny hole in each end with a pin and blow the insides into a bowl from one end....then youcan flush the inside with a syringe full of water with soap, let it dry, and you have a memento

At least a double, you might have an egg inside of an egg there actually. We had two this past year!

Wow that is big I occasionally get large double yolks from my mixed flock. I did find one that big once it was huge but only a single big yoke. My mom aware a turkey had to sneak in and Kay it lol.
So what did you find inside that monster

I decided to have it for breakfast. It was just a double!
Looks like curiosity killer the cat! Looks like it was a yolk/white and a yolk all inside a big white! Weird. Hope that made sense? Lol

We've had eggs that big, our Rhode Islands give us giant eggs every now and then, they're always an interesting find!

Hope it was good! :) mmm

My only laying pullet right now (red sex link) gave me a big egg today, but not that big. Everybody else in the hen house seems to be determined not to lay or molting right now.
