So one of my chickens just started laying this week and she is 18 weeks old and think one of the others isn't far behind now, as well as a about four of my others. But, my question is, will their eggs get larger as they get older? Right now they're pretty small. The hen that started laying is a red sex link, as well as the one that isn't far behind. The others that I think are getting close are rhode island reds and black copper marans. All the ones I think are getting close are showing the usual signs, their combs are getting bigger and starting to be more floppy as well as starting to get a little redder, also they are all starting to fill out their backsides. Are these true signs? Or am I just wishful thinking? Ahhhh who knows. Lol!
