    I've noticed that when my pullets begin laying later,the first eggs are larger. They normally reach normal size within a couple of months anyway.

    Our Australorp began laying a larger egg - about 2.15 to 2.25 oz. The size and weight increased a bit (2.4 oz) after about 2 months. One of our larger EE also began laying a larger egg, although smaller than the Australorp (1.85 to 1.95 oz) and her eggs have been pretty consistent at that weight. One of our wyandottes began laying a very tiny egg (1.2 oz) and I am hoping they get larger.[​IMG]
