    My GLW have recently begun laying which is great. One thing I notice is that the eggs are small, not much bigger than my banty eggs, nowhere near the size of my BO or redstars. Is this normal and will they get larger as the girls get in the routine of laying? They are on 16% layer and are nice birds but unless the eggs increase in size, their eggs are not sellable.

    I have never had any glw's but if they are pullets they should get bigger.Most of my wyandottes lay a decent size egg but nothing overly large.

    My BO's are the biggest eggs I get. The SLW's are ok. Average
