    I am amazed. These suckers are the size of a small peach. Wow. They are mostly single yolkers.

    Next to it is one from my buff orpington (or my red star). Both hens are 36 weeks, from MM hatchery.

    I used to have a mixed breed flock and the wyandotes laid some of the largest eggs, most consistantly. They also had the most vent issues as well (minor prolapsing, vent picking by other hens etc...) so keep an eye on that! Good Luck! [​IMG]
