"Sweetie" is a BIG girl - a Coro Sussex x Lav Orp mix. She just started laying as a Christmas present to us. (1st egg around Dec 24th.)
What continues to surprise me is the SIZE of her pullet eggs. Normally pullet eggs are small & infrequent to start. She's only been laying a month & her pink eggs are bigger than a few of our hens. She's averaging 5 eggs/week.
I compared them to our 3 yr old hen's eggs. The hen's giant eggs weighed 2.86oz & 2.98 oz. (only 2 this week)
Sweetie's eggs are about 2.5" long & ranged from 2.43 to 2.48 oz each. Isn't that kind of large? Should I worry about her getting egg-bound?
With her large body, hopefully she will handle them ok. I would watch her close for a couple months. Some of the signs I notice with egg binding is sitting frequently, obvious discomfort. Hen is looking at stomach and vent frequently. Worst breeds for it seem to be production birds like comets, but I did lose a LO from it.
