    I have two 9 month old silkie chicks and 2 roosters. I finally got my first egg, although only 1 I am really egg-cited

    Update: just checked again and I have another, look out. Problem is that they are so small I think I need a dozen to make a meal

  4. Ah, the dwarf eggs. They will grow bigger.

    Will they get bigger? First chickens, I knew silkies would be smaller but this is small

  6. They won't get to the size of supermarket eggs, but generally the first eggs are the smallest.
