"You've got to see this," my husband said, as he handed me an egg carton that wouldn't close.

"Is it a turkey egg?" I asked, bewildered at the monster-sized-egg.

"Nope, it's an overachiever."

For perspective, the egg on the bottom is an X-Large egg.

Wowzers. I wonder if that poor chicken needed an epidural.

Okay, that makes more sense.

Does anybody happen to know, if this egg had been fertilized, would the twin chicks have hatched, or would they have died? I know about double yolks, but not about twin chicks in one shell.

They say double-yolkers are bad hatchers. I've never tried one in the incubator, though. Double-yolkers are so great at breakfast, I just don't care to waste one. :-)

Thanks, good to know! I've never hatched an egg before, anyway, but it piqued my curiosity :).
