what chickens are best for large eggs
If you want large eggs every single day for only 2-3 years, the ISA brown or red sexlink or production reds can't be beat. If you want fewer large eggs from a chicken over many more years, get a breeder quality heritage chicken such as australorp, barred plymouth rock, speckled sussex, heritage (not hatchery) rhode island red, new hampshire, and orpingtons. Easter eggers are a mix of different breeds that will lay a blue-green egg.
Production red, BO, sex links, white leghorns, new Hampshire red....etc....
i have road Iland reds just started laying and i think the eggs are small will they get bigger?
Eggs usually get bigger as a bird gets older, so yes, they should get bigger.
I've heard great things about RIR's and Leghorns, both are easy to come by as well.
X2, my Rhode Island Red lays pretty large eggs.
Turkens ( Naked Neck's ) also lay huge eggs... very often there are double yolk eggs in the mix...
