Colossal Egg

I went to gather the eggs late this morning, and I found this gigantic thing awaiting me.

This egg is easily twice as big as any egg we have gotten from our chickens.  I placed it in a jumbo size egg carton and couldn't close the container.  A whopper  of an egg - I think the culprit is Yoko our Rhode Island Red.  She lays the biggest eggs on a regular basis.

Our second surprise was when we cooked the egg.  It appears the reason for this huge size is a double yolk.  Essentially we got two eggs in one.  :)  Thanks Yoko.
