    My Bantam just started laying this week...very egg-citing!
    I noticed the first, or second egg (???) she laid is larger than the subsequent eggs she laid this week.
    Why would this be? The eggs look perfect, no soft shells or shell-less ones.
    Might this be related to her diet?

    I wouldn't worry to much, it happens! I have a Buff orp that lays beautiful large eggs and then about once every couple of weeks she lays a jumbo jumbo with 2 yolks.
