    Ok, when we first started with chickens, they were adults. Well, this late spring we aquired some pullets that are now starting to lay but the eggs are TINY, I mean Very tiny, about the size of a Robin egg. The pullets are BO's and I am wondering if this is normal and if they progressively get bigger? DH doesn't like such small breakfasts in the morning [​IMG]

    Ok good, I did't want to worry needlessly since I see so many first timers with super large eggs!
