Chicken Breed Egg Size Comparison

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was hoping to get people on the forum to put pictures of eggs they've gotten to get some ideas of size comparisons.

So--if you've been getting eggs, can you post a picture of an average sized egg next to a quarter and what breed of hen it is from?  I would love to see the colors and sizes of eggs from BYC hens!

Right, I've seen that.  And I know that there are lots with quarters/other money, but I was hoping for a more...regulated? ...comparison for everything.  When you're talking to people about hens who have never had backyard poultry before they need a very defined comparison to understand.  Me, too, for that matter.  lau

I propose a size comparison chart as well as the color comparison--or alongside it.
