You can generally work on one or the other, size or eggs.

The easiest way to improve genetics is with a high quality rooster. I had a barnyard mix flock that were laying well, but so light weight. I add a Bielefelder rooster. There was a woman that was trying to raise them, bought a very expensive dozen eggs and not all of them hatched, but the ones that did were all roosters.

A big improvement on the size of my birds with the next hatch.
