    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.

    Yea I know, too picky![​IMG]

    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.
