    I have a Barred Rock laying eggs and and today she laid this big egg, she has been running loose in the yard with a Golden Seasbright banty and 2 days ago one of my Delawares mated with her. Is this because of the size of the chicken or just nature?

    just nature most days they are they same size but sometimes you may get a smaller or larger usually a double yolk if real big the hen is the hen it doesnt matter who she mates with she still lays the same size egg
