    We have found a 160g egg in the hen house this morning!
    All girls are well!

    Keeper of the hens

    Oh my!! She won't be able to sit down for a week...

    I think someone in your coop deserves treats and some words of sympathy!

    If it's anything like our last one like that, it will be a double-yolker (happens when for some reason - maybe a scare - a hen gets interrupted in the egg-making process at just the right time).

    Keeper of the hens

    Whoa, impressive...but OUCH! :gasp:

    I bet that's a triple yolker!! Apparently an egg with nine yolks was once reported, so be sure to let us know what's inside it!! ;)

    Nope, it's when two yolks accidentally get released from the hen's ovary at the same time...the shell gets wrapped around them both.
