    What kind of ladies do you have and how much do their eggs weigh? Have you found the egg weight changes much with age or other factors?

    Rhode Island Red - 53-57 grams (she is the larger hen of the two RIR's which seems odd to have the smaller egg)
    Rhode Island Red - 62-66 grams
    Americauna - 53-57 grams
    Plymouth Rock - 47-52
    (Buffington not laying yet)

    Plymouth's and Americauna's are their first two egg weights. We just started weighing eggs having just started incubating and checking weight for humidity.
