    how big are Rhode Island Reds and Black Sex link chicken eggs suppose to be?
    Mine have started to lay eggs but they are small.
    I thought they were to lay large eggs?

    Hi Ann, it takes a couple of months before the eggs get bigger.You'll notice that they'll slowly get bigger the more they lay. [​IMG]

    After the first moult, the eggs will increase in size, usually when they become hens.
