    Got my first egg yesterday and another today. The hens are a silver laced wyandotte and a barred rock. Both eggs are kinda small. Will they get bigger or do these hens lay smaller eggs?

    Thank.

    Me too! Just got home from work, let the girls out into the yard and checked the coop - I nice, small perfect egg!
    I'm sure it's from one of my white rocks since she's been squatting the last couple of days. And so it begins! [​IMG]

    Yup! They'll get bigger. I'm still waiting for my BA's to get bigger. She's been laying for almost a month!
