    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. [​IMG]

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