    This egg is from my 1yo OEGB. She is a pretty good layer. The kids and I did a measuring project once and determined that 2 of her eggs is nearly equal the mass of one large store bought egg.

    Here is a picture of some of my eggs. The big ones were layed by my Australorps and the small ones were layed by my bantys.
