    Are standard Cochin eggs on the small size compared to other breeds? My Cochin lays relatively small eggs for her size. My BR's laid much larger eggs for about the same size bird. Thoughts?

    Yep. They aren't the best layers and their eggs are small especially compared to what a scrawny leghorn can lay.
