Egg laying


In the Brooder
Aug 24, 2019
I have 7 hens all different breeds. They are only 4 months old. My dorking is already laying eggs. I’ve got 3 in 3 days. Her eggs are small will they get bigger when she gets older or will they stay small?
All pullet eggs start out smaller and slowly enlarge over the course of months. I'm not familiar with the general egg size of that breed, so I can't comment on that.
Yeh it's all in the breed. My Austrolorps' first eggs were like the size of a store bought medium, now they're the size of two grade A's. I don't know how the poor things walk.
Hey all...jumping on this with a girls have started laying...well kinda. LOL..
One chicken out of 5 has started and it was a RIR. Only 1 week in 3 days. Is that normal? I took it out. Should I have left it?
It can take anywhere from a few days to a few or more months for eggs to get up to a 'large' size...can depend on breed and/or individual bird.
