    White leghorns, Red Sex link, some RIRs. I've got quite the variety and those are my BIG egg layers.

    Out of my current layers (EE, BR, RIR, australorp), my EE lays the biggest eggs and my australorps the smallest. The aussies are also the youngest though.

    A friend of mine has a buff Orp. and my DH bout fell when he seen her eggs [​IMG] they were huge. My friend has to tape the carton lid down when she sells her eggs cause the B.O eggs are so big the lid will not shut, they are very round too. I believe my RIR's and my white plymoth rock lay the biggest one's , I do have 7 RSL chickies under my silkie so we will see.

    If you mean pure breeds....the largest eggs I've seen were Minorcas, then probably leghorns.
    Otherwise the commercial hybrids lay the largest eggs of all ......they were developed to be that that way [​IMG]

    my RIR lays a Jumbo egg every day, sometimes 2 times a day and shes about 7 months old.. I dont have any special lights in there and all that stuff, she just does it on her own.. my other hens lay normal eggs

    One of my Buff Orpingtons consistently lays huge eggs (single yolk), almost every day...but my other Buff Orp lays a smaller egg. My Leghorn eggs are a decent size, but then I get a huge double-yolker from one of them a couple times a week. My Golden Sex-Links aren't old enough yet, so I can't compare the size.
