I just recieved my first eggs Thursday they were very small which I knew was coming because they are the girls first eggs.... When will they begin to reach the "Large" size? There are 9 RIR, 8 Barred Rocks, and 8 Cali Whites. It's just the brown layers not the whites but I'm not sure if its the Barred or RIR's laying.
Thank you! And do you know how long they can sit in the nesting boxes before going bad?
Depends on your weather, if an egg freezes, it will crack but not be ruined. Not good for them to sit in the heat for days at a time before they are collected. So if you collect every day the eggs will be fine. Eggs will stay at room temperature in your house for several weeks and not ruin.
