Anyone who has had chickens for eggs knows that sometimes eggs come in strange shapes, sizes, and coloration. They all don't come out looking like those grade A large eggs you get at the supermarket. I've had my share of strange eggs and I wish that I had taken photos of them. Those pictures would have been fun to share right about now. I've had wee tiny eggs the size of a jumbo marble. And others in the opposite extreme being so large that I'm shocked that a hen could lay them. Some eggs come out completely perfectly round. Others are long and narrow like a torpedo. Some are bumpy. I saw one that was wrinkled all over. Others just wrinkled on one half. I've even see eggs that are soft and leathery because they have no hard shell.
Today a hen laid the egg on the left. It's far bigger than the extra large normal egg on the right. Plus it's misshapen, being flat on one side and no round-end/pointed-end.Looking down from above you can see how the egg compares to the normal egg on the right.
I can't sell this egg because its too large. Won't fit into an egg carton. So we'll be eating it ourselves. Whatcha wanna bet it's a double yolker? Do triple yolkers exist?
By the way, I checked the hen that laid this egg. I was really concerned that she might have injured herself. But she appears to be fine. Wow, SuperChicken!
Postscript: I just cracked the egg for dinner tonight. Only one yolk, but it was a whopper.
