My blue copper girl just started laying. There is a good chance that the eggs are fertile because the roos I had her with have been mating all the hens for the last 3 weeks or so. Pullet eggs are usually smaller than the eggs of a mature laying hen, at least at first. Hers are a little smaller than a normal blue copper's would be that had been laying awhile but they are not tiny or anything. My question is: Is it okay to still hatch these eggs? Will the babies be small, deformed or too premature from a newly laying pullet egg?
