    What chickens lay the largest eggs? My production reds laid me a lot of double yolks. Not my new batch though. They are different breeds. One of are barred rocks laid us a double yolk once.

    I have a Isa white x Rhode Island red cross that lays huge eggs. She's almost 7 years old now and still sometimes lays, maybe once in a few weeks.
