    The picture doesn't do justice to the size difference in these eggs! I have 7 old laying hens and 20 something RIRs that are just now starting to lay.

    The smallest one is from my new hens...the rest are from the old hens as far as I can tell.

    wow! Those are pretty big eggs! [​IMG]
    Are they shiny or is it just me? [​IMG]
    That first light colored one on the left, close to the can, is really big! (it's next to the really small one)
    Pretty eggs! Tell your hens I said, "Good job, ladies!!!" [​IMG] [​IMG]
