    Yup!! They even have good shells!! Tiny but great shells. They've been eating lots of the oyster shell. They seem to know. I sure hope so! And hopefully bigger ones!



    WOW! Now that would be a LONG wait! Mine are only 20 or 21 weeks I think.

    So far we've gotten an egg a day from 2!! WOOT! They are still tiny though... when do they usually start getting bigger in size?? Or will they not? They're 21 weeks. Just PERFECT little eggs though, just tiny!! Lol

    My girls turned 6 months yesterday and have been laying for 3 weeks. Both EE laid a medium (over 49 g) egg today. We get small and mediums but as time passes we are getting more mediums and the occasional large from other breeds.
