    The lighter egg is from our Swedish flower hen and the other is from a Rhode Island Red.
    Is this just the size they will lay or do they get bigger? I have to use 2 of them to equal 1 Red hen egg.

    Never had any myself, but went and read a bit about Sweedish Flowers, and folks are saying they lay large size and plenty of them. So give her a while to get going. Lots of hens start off small, and then the eggs get larger as time goes on. Either way, they will taste great! :)

    I just got some Swedish Flowers from a person who said they out lay her leghorns regularly. And the chicks were good size, so not from small eggs.

    I would expect them to get bigger with time. [​IMG]

    Swedish Flower are going to be my choice for breeding a dual purpose chicken!

    Good luck, your eggs are beautiful!
