    Red Sex link ( Red Star ) ....RIR.........or B. Australorpe?
  2. Colored Egg Farmer

    Colored Egg Farmer Chicken overload

    The sexlinks and rr lay about the same size eggs. the other breed I'm not sure about.

    And also breed does have an effect on egg size but its mostly due to the hens age.

    I have 2 of the 3 and my red stars or as I call them cinnamon queens lay the biggest eggs.
    I don't have rir but have seen eggs from them and as I remember are big nice eggs.
    My Black Australorp lay great and the eggs are nice but not as big as the red girls lay.
