    My chickens lay medium to large- BO, BR, BSL, etc. When I go to our local Amish market, the eggs are GIGANTIC. Each one is jumbo. They say their chickens are a mixed breed. I want BIG eggs. What would everyone suggest as a good breed to purchase for the biggest eggs?

    Old chickens lay biggest eggs, just not as many.
