    OK, These are small.. Eggs i got 1 Yesterday Afternoon and Once this Afternoon.. One of the chickens (I Believe a Golden Sex Link About16 Weeks Old Is the One Laying) It is going into the Duck House where the Duck's lay their eggs and leaving a gift..

    The one i think it is is the most friendly and the one the rooster seems to always want to be mating with.

    It may be time to install the nesting boxes on the hen house!!

    Woohoo! It’s always exiting when you get your first eggs. Don’t be too worried about it though, I’ve gotten eggs as small as the opening of a spoon and although they didn’t have a yoke, they are still eatable if desired. Have fun with your newly layer hens!

    We can't tell from the photo how small they are, but they sure are beautiful!

    And #3 arrived yesterday i cracked one open it has a tinny yolk also. All about 1/2 the size of a normal chicken egg. Wife Confirmed it was one of the Gold Sex Links watched her go in the duck house and sit on the eggs when she left there was a tiny brown egg.

    There will be bigger eggs in your future, I predict! Take some photos with that quarter a month from now. :fl
