    Yes. It's normal for pullet eggs to start small. However, sometimes they will also lay a large double yolker. Lots of oddities are possible as they get the "eggworks" worked out.

    Don't know how small it is exactly. Pullet eggs tend to be small. Brahmas, for all their size, do not lay the biggest eggs. About average for the most part. This is compared to the biggest we get here which, oddly enough, always come from a barred rock.
