OMG! I got my first chicken egg today! I am so jazzed!! My question.... the egg is as small as a guinea egg...is this because it is a first egg? and when should I feel comfortable eating my chickens eggs??? I was thinking maybe they need a bit of practice to get things right? As you guessed, I am new to this but am trying hard to do things right...my chicks are 15 - 16 weeks old and have been on layer feed for a week or so..
