    I was thinking about getting some little bitty girls - golden laced cochins perhaps - specifically for the tiny little eggs. What size could I expect? (inch wise) like 1inch in length, or what?

    thanks

    half the size of a store bought egg. I have to use two bantam eggs in place of one large egg when I am cooking.
