Small eggs?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi there, I recently, as in two days ago got some ready to lay bovan brown hens. A few have started laying already which was a bit of a surprise. From my research I heard they should be laying a larger size egg. But so far they've been pretty small. I presume there just young hens, but I half t make sure. I sell eggs, but never with this kind of hen, If they don't get to large size or over, I don't mind those size eggs, but that's not what my costumers want, and I can only eat so many eggs. I just wanted a second opinion. Thanks

Pullet eggs are always small, peewee even. They quickly get to good size and full size before few months. Each year of age the eggs ge even bigger.

The egg size will increase.  Initial pullet eggs are generally on the small size.

Thanks a bunch. That's what I thought, but I wanted to make sure
