    Hi, I just got my egg scale yesterday and was surprised to find that none of my colored eggs are size Large! They looked large to me. I have an Ameraucauna, a FCM and two Easter Eggers. They all started laying in the last three months. Will they get bigger or is that just the size they lay? Just curious!

    They should get bigger. My experience with EE's has been they will, eventually, lay a large egg but never extra large unless it's a double-yolker. That being said, there are some EE's that are more bantam than larger bird too in which case a medium egg will be a large one for them.
