Giant Egg!

We got a giant egg the other day. It was off the egg scale. It wouldn't even fit in an egg carton. It had two large yolks inside. Weird. Ouch!
I'm just relaxing after a day of teaching in the morning and puppy patrol in the afternoon. I found a great but, alas, impractical solution to puppy energy. Every time she woke up I took her hunting. Walked about a half mile down to the end of the pasture and back. She got into the creek, chased rabbits, found a rabbit skull and chewed on that. I even took a couple of shots at the rabbits with a 20 gauge. She doesn't seem to mind the slightly louder sound of that either.
We went out hunting three different times. Of course, this took about three hours of my day. But after each time, she came back and slept like a baby.


  1. Nice eggs! What breed did they come from?

  2. we too had a giant egg weighing in at 4.5 oz. biggest chicken egg we have ever seen.

  3. Can't say for sure what breed. It was probably a Black sex-link. But it could have been a Rhode Island Red or a Barred Rock.

  4. WOW! that egg is huge!{saw your link on BYC forum.Im TnMama over there and I just joined :)I have a blog on here too,but its not about chickens just yet.}
