    Three eggs in two days laid by my 23 week old Wheaten Maran. I really thought my Americauna would be first. These are quite a bit smaller than I thought they would be, but then, she's a 23 week old Maran. She's a pretty small little lady.

    Not sure on the weight. Don't have a scale. They are certainly on the small-ish side, but I got one yesterday that was bigger. One of my BCM's also started laying... the smallest of the flock.

    Got six eggs in 3 days, but none yesterday.

    The girls all seem to be getting noisier and their combs are having a growth spurt, so I'm hoping they will all be laying soon.

    4 Black CM, 1 Blue CM, 1 Wheaten Maran and an Americauna.

    YAY!!! Sometimes they start out a little small and then work up to big girl eggs. Congrats. The chicken in my avatar is named Ginger also!
