Mrs. Tony Troilett of Conway doesn’t have an explanation, but her hens suddenly have started laying giant-sized eggs.
The hens laid three eggs Saturday and one Sunday that weighed a combined total of one pound. All of them are double yolk.
Mrs. Troilett said she’d been getting one big egg every day. She thinks the eggs are being laid by the Indian Runner hens she got in a swap for a sink.
"I’ve had chickens for 30 years and I’ve never seen anything like this," she said.
