    Will the egg size get larger when my 10 hens start laying more eggs? Right now they are really small! I was hoping that when I bought them that they were gonna be like the large or jumbo eggs that the grocery stores sell.

    Give them about a month or so and you will say"Man,those are big eggs. When did that happen?" They get even bigger after they're a year old. My marans start out laying a large egg. That's one of the things i like about them.
