I have a buff orpington (of not the highest quality stock, for sure) and her eggs are just a touch larger than my friend's silkie eggs. I just read a post not long ago saying orpingtons don't lay small eggs. Is it safe to assume that if I got more orpingtons, the eggs would be larger in size? They are a pinkish brown, just like shown on Buff Hooligan's Orpington page. So that part's right. Our girl has been broody twice and has gone through an official molt, so I was hoping they'd get bigger. Guess not.
