    I have a question- what size/weight should Sebright eggs be? I bought some from eBay, and they seem really large to me. Half of them weigh over 38g, which is more than any of my bantam Ameraucana or D'Uccle eggs weighed, and everything I've read says Sebright eggs should be 'tiny'. Unfortunately, I can't find a weight for 'tiny' listed anywhere.

    The seller accidentally shipped one bantam OEG egg, which is noticeably smaller than any of the Sebright eggs (26g). That's what got me wondering in the first place. These eggs just seem awfully big for such a small bird.
