I have an olive egger (RRR and an Ameracauna mix) that just started to lay and her eggs are gigantic. I have a full RRR and hers are large but not competed to Olives. Should I be concerned? Olive is on the left Barley (RRR) on the right.

Hi :frow I have Marens which lay eggs about that size (assuming the RIR egg is average size) and have had no real problems with my hens, no prolapse, etc.
You have a nice X-large egg layer, be happy. :wee
