    Ok so I'm curious. We have 1 Rhode Island Reds that are both consistently laying jumbo eggs (larger than 74g) every day. Anyone else's reds laying this large? I thought they wouldn't get that big. Also none of them are double yolkers.

    Mine lay rather large eggs. Not sure if they are that big as i have never weighed one.

    My RIR's eggs are not the biggest in the bunch. My Black Sex Link's are very large....every time....and at times lays HUGE eggs.
