    My Rhode Island reds laid some big eggs as my incubator says it can fit 12 eggs in it and I could barely fit in 10 I had to put two on each end of the egg turner just to fit in ten eggs so I highly recommend them as they are my personal favors when them are they only birds I have that don't abosoluty freak out and squawk and squeal when u pick the. Up acting like ur killing them so my Rhode Island reds they come up to me jump on my lap and my shoulder so they are very calm and docile but if u want them to be calm u have to work with them and they have came up to me since

    Anconas lay extra large eggs too. Big beautiful white eggs. They're a flightier breed though, so not usually good with confinement, more of a free range bird. Great with predators but tricky finding eggs sometimes ;)

    My 3 leghorns lays extra large white eggs everyday, barely missed couple days in almost 2 years, and the ones I have are not flighty.
