EGG SIZE

Discussion in 'Games, Jokes, and Fun!' started by laurelbrookhens, Jan 22, 2017.

  1. Just for fun......What is the largest and smallest chicken egg you have ever collected after the chickens were regularly laying? We have Sexlinks and Rhode Island Reds. Our smallest egg so far is 1.4 oz and our largest is 3.4oz.

    Hey Laurel

    I do not weigh my gals eggs as we have 5 x pet bantams. However, this is definitely the smallest egg we have had [​IMG]

    Hi just wanted to jump in and ask a question if I may . Is there any factors involved why the same chicken can lay all sizes of eggs? My chickens are all young and seem to lay large double-Yolkers one day then small the next , then medium . They are all mixed breed , thanks
