I have a5 year old home in Stockton California.
I want to change stop angle valves supplying to all toilets.
What size copper pipes are used to supply fresh water in bathrooms?
Are all supply pipes in the homes the same size?

I can't say for your house, but most home supplys are 3/4 into the house, reduced to 1/2" at the fixtures such as sinks, toilets. Toilets lines at the shutoff can be 1/2 or 3/8.

Just a note...When they say 1/2" inlet, that will refer to 1/2" tubing, not 1/2" copper pipe. 1/2" copper pipe, the usual size for water lines to fixtures, is actually 5/8"... So make sure it says that for the inlet to the shutoffs. And check each box!! You don't know who threw what valve back into what box!! I speak from experience.. lol
