    Congratulations! First eggs are always SO exciting...and waiting is SO hard, as you know. :D Yep, my pullets' eggs were super small, too. And most of them never really got to laying big eggs, despite laying for a few months. Now none are laying at all, and haven't been for a while, lol. :p
    That's great your pullet started laying in winter. I see you live in Texas...is it cold there?

    We have our days of cold and warm. In Texas if you don't like the weather just wait a second it will change. Lol

    Congrats! That is great!
    Mine keep teasing me. Someone is rearranging the nest box, and 2 weeks ago someone sang the egg song. So it should be any time now (I hope!).
    Many happy egg collecting days to you!
