Hi all - have a stupid question. I have three pretty ladies - since May 14th. They are getting acclimated with the 6 other birds (two giants, 2 polish, an Easter egger and a bantam Cornish - I think) and at least 2 are laying eggs. The problem is these eggs are as big a golf balls. Seriously. These young ones are as big as the Polish - actually a little bigger. Is there something wrong? We thought that they lay large brown eggs.
Pullets usually start out with small eggs that get bigger over several months. They are often as small as 29G but will get into the 60G and up range soon.
Get a small kitchen scale and start weighing the eggs. You will see that they are getting bigger.
