    I can get 9 free cinnamon queens from a neighbor that is moving and
    i just didnt know how large the eggs would be and if they are good layers.

    They are very good layers , mine lay almost daily. They lay a fairly large light brown egg.

    Just remember to take into account their age. Mine went through a molt at 18 months...no eggs for about 3 months....but have picked back up again.
