    I eat about 8 eggs every morning, does anyone know what birds lay the biggest or most protein packed eggs?

    No idea on the biggest egg layer but the protein I would think is dependent on the diet the hen is eating.

    My RIR lays really big eggs. She lays 12-14 days before taking a break. Her eggs are the first to be eaten/used from our carton.

    I have no clue what breed lays the biggest eggs though.
