I ran out of eggs the other day and hubby bought me some from a local farm that sells eggs through our butcher. What surprised me was how big the eggs were. Much bigger than my own but also much bigger than those I used to get at the supermarket.

Which got me wondering. Which are the best breeds for those big eggs?

Also, birds in their second or third or more year lay larger eggs than they did when younger. Basically, as a hen gets older, it lays fewer, larger eggs.

I think the largest eggs we ever had came from a largefowl brahma.
