    Sooo... I'm thrilled that the girls are starting to lay but how long til they lay normal sized eggs?

    It seems like all I'm getting are these iddybiddy eggs.

    Congrats on the eggs!!
    As their bodies adjust to laying, the eggs will get bigger over time.

    My Reds,have been laying for a month and a half or more now.
    I got golf ball size eggs from them for about 3 weeks,then occasionaly i'd get a small get,then occasionally i get a HUGE egg,that wouldnt allow me to close the carton.Now i get good size eggs from them (med-large),

    My white leghorn (1 month layer), still lays small eggs,sometimes mediums,but she never ever misses a day,and shes always the first on the nest! lol

    i bet after a month you'll be getting good sized eggs.
