    My FBCM's have started laying!!![​IMG] The eggs are not very large. They are what I would call medium size eggs. I am thinking the eggs are a little on the small side for FBCM's. Will they start laying larger eggs?

    The eggs generally get a bit larger as the hens get older. I've had smallish eggs on the first try and now, after some months, the eggs sometimes are too big for the carton.
