I'm thinking of getting some Easter Eggers because I keep hearing such wonderful things about them. I'm just wondering if their eggs will be close enough to my other eggs in size that I can mix them for selling. Or are they smaller and I'd need to separate them?

There are bantam EEs and LF (large fowl).

The LF eggs will be medium (to med-large) in size from my experience. The bantam ones are adorable!

So yes you can mix them in but they will be smaller than the sex link eggs or leghorn eggs.

Easter Eggers can vary quite a lot in egg size. This is one of the reasons I stopped buying them in favor of breeding my own. They can run anywhere from medium to extra-large with most in the medium to large category in my experience. The same for shell quality and color. A lot of variation.

My adult hatchery EEs pretty consistently lay eggs that are between medium and large, the leghorn X EEs tend to lay large to extra large. The shell color really varies in the hatchery EEs, but most lay a sort of medium green.
