    My batch of spring pullets are now 22 weeks old and half have begun to lay regularly. How long once they start laying will the eggs reach full size? I have Bl. Australorps & EEs.

    Thanks!

    I think it depends on each chicken, but the eggs get bigger as they grow, as their hip width increases. Watch them get bigger and get bigger eggs, with a proper diet.
