    The slowest growing of my 3 jerseys has started laying several weeks ago.
    I keep getting these bantam eggs. Lol.

    I had a full grown JG who gave me tiny eggs (a little smaller than a ping pong ball) for a couple weeks after we bought her before she started producing normal eggs. I thought sure it was one of my chicks laying early (16 weeks), but, I "caught her in the act" one day. It was a bit of a surprise! :)

    Give her some time and she should be putting out big eggs like her sisters.
