So my newest chicken, Penguin O'Tool, just started laying two weeks ago. She lays about 6 dark brown eggs a week and they are tiny. Tinier than her friend Pidgy McNugget, who is a bantam sized chicken.

Penguin is as large as my easter egger. I read that Wyandottes lay smaller than average eggs but are they supposed to be tinier than a bantam egg?

Do you have any pics? I just want to see what Peguin O' Tool and her eggs look like. I am thinking of getting some wyandotte pullets in the spring. :)

Sourland has it right. They'll get larger. Don't be surprised if you get some funky eggs too as her system adjusts into it's normal laying cycle. She'll get there.
