Do jumbo pekins lay larger eggs?
Also, do they tend to be good layers in general?
My Jumbo Pekin laid about 3 eggs a week from about April through October - she was already around 2 years old when I got her, and she lived to be around 6 or 7. So, I have no idea what kind of egg production she had during her first year (the first year is always the most productive, it'll slow down every year after that), but she laid VERY consistently for an old gal! Her eggs were significantly bigger than my Campbell duck eggs, but I never had any regular-sized (non-Jumbo) Pekin eggs to compare them to!
My JP sometimes lays HUGE eggs if she misses a day for what ever reason. They are 4 inches long or more. She lays every day but if she misses a day I know she gonna pop out a biggun. This is a smaller one but she has dropped bigger
My Jumbo is 3 yrs old this week. I got her when she was 3 days old. She has laid an egg every day except when she went broody last yr and when she was in molt. Her eggs are huge compared to my standard prkin hen's.
