My Light Brahma started laying Sept. 1. I know the eggs usually start out small and get bigger as chickens mature. But for her size her's are very small in my opinion! Her body size is much bigger than my Easter Egger and the EE's eggs are MUCH bigger.
(see pic). Are Brahmas known to have small eggs??

Light Brahmas lay the same size eggs as EE's eggs. Though a young hen lays small eggs then they start to get larger as the hen gets older. She will start laying eggs the same size as you EE's later.

I have looked on hatchery websites and they say Light Brahmas lay Medium eggs and so do EE's too.
