    It's an island.... they can't possibly have all that many breeds there...can they? I would imagine it's a local breed or a mix thereof. Anybody familiar with Cuban chicken breeds?

    Cubalayas are beautiful and totally wild, but I can't imagine they lay an egg that size. That kind of looks like it could be one of them, though . . .
