Perhaps a mod could do something creative with this. :lol:


Shall we limit it to eggs over 100g?


Anyone beaten these figures?

has anybody had problems after their girls laid larger eggs? I think my record is about 100g, so not going to score any points, but it has led to these being referred to as Eye Watering Eggs (or EWEs for short) - I had to swallow hard and wince when I saw the first one! :wink:


Are they more likely to prolapse when they lay these? Which breeds lay the largest eggs - mine are Omlet Gingernuts, are they the biggest layers?

Here it is in all it's glory, and a double-yolker.


At the top 54g, 73g and 139g


In omlet eggcups next to 73g egg


She does lay eggs at least 80-90g generally, but seems OK unless she has a soft egg. I saw her lay a 137g egg on the lawn the same week and it just slid out really easily in one go :shock:

She has had undiagnosed health problems several times though :?

I just assumed he had bought an ostrich by mistake


Me too!


The largest egg I have had was about 100g, Snooty laid it and it was a double yolker. she generally lays eggs about 65g-70g, so does Bossy, but Snooty is a sporadic layer. Cheeky is a small girl and churns out 55g ones on a daily basis. However, they are all having a protracted moult at the moment, so not many eggs at all :?


Growing up with my grans chickens, she regularly had weird eggs as she had probably 50 laying chickens at any one time. I quite liked the ones in a 'bag' no shell, just the membrane (so did grandmas dog, they were her treat :D ) but once she had a quadruple yolker that was long and had several 'waists'. There were the occasional fertile ones too, all bloody :shock: .
