    I got medium through Jumbo. My jumbo layers are some of my older Easter eggers. The rest of my eggs are mostly in the large to extra large range while some of the youngest pullets are laying a good sized medium but I expect that will increase as all but the youngest pullets lay large to extra large. And I don't have any production birds, either.
    Also wanted to mention I have ducks and get duck eggs which are larger than most chicken eggs but several of my older EE's lay eggs larger than my duck eggs. My husband always kids when he brings them in and asks which ducks lay blue or green eggs.

    She's a Buff Orpington and my biggest chicken. We named her Brianne, after Brianne of Tarth from Game of Thrones. She's a big blonde gal too![​IMG]
