    We have a 6 month old SLW (have only had her for a week and a half so I don't know how long she has been laying). Last week she laid 5 eggs then one rubber egg and then so far this week two more eggs. I expect because of the rubber egg her system is not quite regulated yet. Her eggs are 1.5-2 ounces so they are pretty small. Very consistent though. Just wondering if I should expect the eggs to get bigger over time and if so over what period of time does that usually happen.

    Not that size matters. LOL

    They'll grow a little week by week. After about 2 or 3 months of laying they're usually a decent size.
