    I know that this has been asked a million times ( well maybe not that many) but a few, at any rate I did a search and couldn't find the answer ..so please forgive me for my limited searching abilty (sp)
    What breed lays those really big Jumbo eggs in the supermarket? I have seen white and brown..
    I would like to get another flock going

    Thanks

    I may be wrong but I believe older sexlink hens lay alot of jumbo eggs, dont know about the white eggs.

    I have both Shaver Red Sex-Link and Buff Sex-Link and both are capable of truly enormous eggs. The older they are; the bigger the eggs.
    Don't know about white birds, sorry.

    The leghorns lay the white not sure about the brown...my NHR lays a really large/XL brown egg.
