First Eggs!!! 10/29.2015

We got our first eggs today!!!!  They are rather small...is this what I can expect from these hens, or will they get larger as the hens mature?

Congrats! Usually, hens start out laying small eggs, and after a couple weeks they get much bigger (even giving two yolks). 

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Congratulations! It's always so egg-citing getting those first eggs. :o) The first eggs are always small, but they will get larger over the next few weeks as your pullet matures some more.

Congratulations on the first eggs! Egg size varies with each bird, but they usually do get larger as a hen matures and molts.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
