Ok, I've done the search and I know that Orpingtons lay "large" eggs, but my question is more specific - what would be an average size of an Orpington egg in either grams or ounces. Here's what my girl has done for me so far: First 7 eggs weighed 40g apiece (1.4oz) Next 2 eggs were 44g (1.55oz) Last 2 days her egg was up to 48g (1.7oz) I'm just wondering how close these are to being "full-sized". DD is keen to have her go broody and hatch out some chicks but I told her we wouldn't let her hatch out the small pullet eggs anyway, since they wouldn't give a developing chick enough room to grow. When I compared her first egg (40g) to the last of my store bought eggs (60g), there was a huge difference in size. But now that her eggs are up to 48g, there isn't such a difference, so I'm wondering - if she were to go broody tomorrow (not likely I know - this is just curiosity & hypothetical), could she successfully brood these 48g eggs, or will they make it all the way up to 60g like the store bought eggs?
