Hello all -

Got my regular 5 eggs today from my 5 girls laying and 1 tiny little eggs the size of a grape, LOL. I have a Red Comet pullet about 13 weeks old. Is it possible she's laying all ready or is it possible for one of my older girls to have laid the tiny egg?

Just wondering-
Em

My guess: More likely it came from one of the older ones. But then, Gold Comets a bred to lay a lot. 13 weeks is pretty young -- my last startup was at 17 weeks and I was surprised at that age.

If you have some food coloring you could dab a little on her vent and see what happens.

I have a 4 month old New Hampshire Red and she just started laying. The eggs are so small and very cute. I was told the eggs will get larger as the hen ages. They are just so cute that I have to put a pinhole on both ends and blow out the white and yolk so I can keep the shells. Of course it would be nice if she quickly starts laying larger eggs...
