    Hi, the good news is that my little aracaunas are starting to lay pretty green eggs. The problem is they are really small - about the size of the eggs my bantams lay. Is that normal? Will they get bigger as they get more 'practice'?

    The birds are bigger than my two Reds, who lay good sized eggs.

    Thanks for any insights/thoughts.
