Stefanne Kelley : Hi Gina! I enjoy receiving your newsletter and am always learning something new or reading an interesting story with every issue. I wanted to share a few pictures that I thought were very interesting, and that the other readers would enjoy.

My husband and I went out of town for Christmas and had some friends taking care of our cats and chickens. Our first morning back I went out to the coop only to discover the biggest egg I had ever seen. I thought someone might have replaced on of my hens with an ostrich!! The egg measured 3 inches tall by 2 inches wide.

When we finally cracked the egg open we expected to find a multiple yolk egg, but instead we found another perfectly formed egg inside the giant egg!! We were shocked! It was the last thing we expected to find, and I am guessing pretty rare!

The next picture is an xray that I took of one of my hens that I thought was egg bound. Just thought it was a really neat xray and wanted to share with everyone. She ended up passing the egg on her own, but has not laid since.
