    I hear a lot on here about EE's . Do they lay large as well as colorful eggs and how often? I may want some next summer. Jean

    my two lay medium to large eggs, I think. I don't really know what a large grocery store egg looks like anymore. My EEs (hens about 1 1/2 years old) lay much bigger eggs than my silkies, and bigger than my BO pullets are laying; but not as big as my RIR the same age as they are. Hope this helps.

    I've got six EEs; four lay a large to XL, the other two lay consistent Jumbos. But, only 2 of the 6 lays green eggs.

    My EEs laid big eggs. Typically as big as or bigger than my buff orps.

    Mine was laying humongous eggs... (however, she is taking an extended leave of egg laying, it seems. Argh)

    I have 2 EE;s, one lays a rather small blue/green egg. The other one lays a large olive green egg. They usually lay everyday, but sometimes they take a day off. Right now they are going through their first molt. So no eggs from them at the moment. [​IMG]
