    So my cuckoo maran, Big Momma, laid her first egg today. :) it's much smaller than I pictured. She's noticibly larger than my orpingtons, will their eggs be even smaller or will my marans eggs get larger as she continues to lay? [​IMG]

    Her eggs should get somewhat bigger as she matures. That's a pretty egg, congratulations to you and Big Momma!
