how big should a standard cochin's egg be?
They are medium to large size brown egg.
the one i fount in my pen was the size of my silkie eggs. i do have two silkies in that pen but i think they are too young to lay, they hatched this april and it was laid in a nest box up high where the silkies dont usaully go but the cochins do.
Quote:Have they just started laying? If so, it is probably a small pullet sized egg. As they lay more eggs, the eggs will get larger in size. They don't lay huge eggs despite their huge body size.
Mine are still laying small eggs. It takes a bit to get them primed.
Mine laid a medium egg, kind of light brown. Definitely bigger than the silkie eggs and not the same color. I can tell the Cochin eggs (even the bantams) by the color. The silkies are more pinkish white. The Cochins lay more of a tan. My LF Cochin has a bigger egg than the bantams but not as big as some of my other LF (Marans, Ameraucanas).
no they are about 2 yrs old
