I have had a whopper but did not take a photo of it on the scale so it doesnt count.

113g is the biggest I have had.

Ouch!!! And we thought 93 was big???
Did your hen go into shock? I would have!!
Even when our girl laid the 93 gram and "Wozza" went out a day or two later and an egg was on the ground under the perch - he asked why would that be there?
My response "If you laid that one a couple of days ago you would probably "PLOP" one out too.
What was the breed just out of curiosity and was it a double yolker??
I would assume so as Wozza wanted to put ours in the incubator???
Dont think so!! Siamese chickens wont work for me!!!
That one "TAKES THE CAKE" excuse the pun!!!!

It was one of the giant australorps ( so you could say she is a monster chook :) ) She didn't lay for a few days after that one. Poor girl it was huge. Yep double yolker and lots and lots of egg white. Was like 2 eggs crammed into one.

Ah fantastic!
Ditto saabman - our lot have been off for forever then suddenly a few days ago we had 3 eggs in a day - actually forgot what it was like to collect eggs :lol: Don't know what started them as we are experiencing unchanging weeks of 13 to 15 degrees, foggy mornings and freezing nights.
