    That is exactly what my first RIR's egg looks like-do the eggs get bigger eventually?

    Mine has been laying for about 3-4 months now and the eggs have not gotten bigger.

    I just got 3 RIR's from tractor supply last Sat. I guess they are about a week old.... I know I've got awhile but when do they start laying eggs? [​IMG]

    My RIR'a eggs are jumbo and dark. I do feed spianch to them 2x a week. I read that will make them darker and it did for her.
