    What size eggs do they lay? Anyone have comparison pics? I want to order some Brahma pullet chicks in a few months, but can't decide on Standards or Bantams.

    egg sizes vary from breed of bird and its age and condition
    generally speaking a banty will lay any where from slightly larger than a walnut to a small egg like you'd find in the grocery store
    standard breeds will lay a small egg all the way up to a jumbo egg
    your small egg filling up an area the size of a pop can top, your jumbo filling up a small frying pan
    cackle hacthery has this picture for comparison [​IMG]

    hope it helps [​IMG]
