You GO, Girl!

Somebody is doing very good work! Everyday, for the last few days, one of the girls is laying a monster egg! Bigger than what we would get if we bought large eggs! Rather puts the others to shame. When we first got the hens at nineteen weeks of age, we were getting four or five small eggs a day. The number has increased to sixteen or seventeen a day and the sizes have been getting consistently bigger. But,so far, no one else is laying the monster eggs. We'll have to do some more reading and see if it's genetic, or can we look forward to all happy hens laying huge eggs!
