    You only have the 4 hens, or do you have others?
    It you have only the 4, pullet eggs are small when they first lay, but every time they lay, they get just a little bigger. It will problly take a few months before there big.
    If you have more than the 4 hens, they might not be old enough. My Faverolles started laying right when they turned 5 months old. 6 months is just a average.
