What Size Would You Like Today ???
These 3 eggs were laid last week by the same Red Dorking hen. !!

The large one was 100 gr and had a double yolk.

The normal one was 50 gr

The small one was 10 gr with no yolk

Well I am guessing consistency is not her middle name. The 50g one looks almost round in that photo!

How strange! hopefully when she's in full swing,they will all be the same size as the nice big one <img src='' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />
What a range! Amazing and all in the same week <img src='' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='blink' />
I've had a very similar thing with one of my Red Dorking girls. A tiny egg with no yolk (11g - smaller than the eggs from my quail!), her usuals at 48-52g and larger ones (70g but not double yolkers). The usual eggs are also more rounded than those of my other Red Dorking, who lays better shaped, paler and larger eggs (54-59g range). I had hoped to breed from this pair next year, but I'm not to sure about incubating these smaller rounded eggs? I'm a bit disappointed with the egg size. Pic below are the small eggs, with a 58g Welbar egg in for comparison     .
