That had to hurt !

I was really surprised when we got this egg. My young chickens had just started laying ,so I was expecting little eggs not this monster.  It was so big we had to measure it. It measured 3 inches long and 6 inches round. I have never seen an egg that big. We did notice we were 1 egg short for a while after getting this one. I can't blame her.  I'd never lay again. We gave a dozen to my mother with this egg in it. She called to tell me that the egg held 3 yolks. She said she only need that one egg to make an omelet for daddy.  What a way to conserve eggs. LOL


  1. Ouch, that did have to hurt. Amazing! How wonderful that your mother gets fresh eggs!

  2. Poor chicken! I have never seen a triple yolker, WOW!!

  3. Hey- me too. We have the same post today but mine was only a double. What happened that we both had this happen the same day! I think the full moon is over.

    1. I have to go check your post. Are our chickens working together or what.

  4. oh my gosh...this is a fun post! that is what men say when we have our babies too.

  5. p.s. I cannot wait to tell my kids about the triple yoke...

  6. This egg is too funny and bizarre! Poor little thing. I've been reading through your posts, and I really like your blog! Thank you so much for visiting mine today and letting me know!!
