    Got this today. That's a normal sized egg and a tiny one. I feel like one of my baby Plymouths might be coming into lay.

    I should post a pic of one of the eggs I got yesterday - it was a monster! I feel sorry for the poor girl who laid that.

    Default Backyard chickens anyone?

    Normal egg. Big egg. Oh my goodness egg. (Excuse the poo, I haven't washed them yet)

    And this is one I got last year - it was tiny with just a speck of yolk.

    While we're all sharing pics of eggs, here are a pics with both the smallest and the largest to date:

    The little one here was just 29g, and it had almost no yolk. The big one was 78g, so basically jumbo by supermarket standards.

    Ok so this big one on the right made me feel bad for the poor chook that laid it. It was a whopping 111g!!! Look at it in the carton!

    that poor girl! I've had some whoppers, but I don't think I've had any quite that big! I occasionally get ones that are too big for the carton to close, but that's seriously over achieving!

    I really feel for the girls sometimes. I think our biggest egg was somewhere around the 130g mark. I just went searching for a photo but couldn't find it.
    I have a hen who is really old but still occasionally lays an egg, but they have no shell.

    I love all these eggs. It's so interesting. The little one I got today was unusual. My girls lay very uniform eggs. Exact same size and colour. Sometimes they have really big yolks but that's about the only difference

    Don't be put off if that sounds a bit overwhelming. We have kept chooks for years and don't have a first aid kit per se. We have only ever had one case of the sniffles. We live rural which no doubt helps but honestly predators are our biggest concern. Safe-guard against predators and I believe you are well on your way to happy chicken ownership
