    Originally she was laying small eggs. It took two to make one fried egg...and she had chicks that were a few months old...but suddenly she is laying medium sized eggs or wider eggs. One was so large I thought my 18 wk old RIR had started laying! Is this typical of Cochins???

    My orpingtons started out by laying small eggs, now they are up to med/large size eggs.

    So this is an occasional thing cause its like three eggs now, esp. the first one that I thought the RIR had laid. The other two are just wider and a little bigger than her normal ones.
