    They are known to be excellent layers of LARGE brown eggs. Give them some time and they will get bigger! Nice you are getting eggs this time of year!

    'Pullet eggs' are smaller as they just begin to lay...how soon they will get larger can vary from a week to months.
    Only time will tell.
