I am wondering which chickens lay the largest eggs? Actually, probably white leghorns? But who's next? Do brown leghorns lay a large egg also? They would be a little prettier. I would like to get some layers who lay a pretty good size egg. I have recently acquired 8 RIR hens and a roo from a neighbor who is going into turkey raising in a big way, so can't have chickens on his place. They have been laying about a year, and still lay a smallish egg. Soon after they started laying for him, I got a couple dozen eggs from him and incubated them. Saved the pullets, and when they started laying, they laid a very small egg--about the size of my Silkies eggs, and they hadn't gotten any larger after a couple months, when I sold them. I had always thought RIR's laid a pretty good egg. comments? Thanks.
