    I know it is normal for chickens to lay small eggs when they first start, but I have gotten 5 eggs since Friday from one Pullet that are all just barely 30 grams [​IMG]

    Another one just started yesterday and hers are right around 50 grams which seems more normal.

    How long on average for my petite layer to increase her size to a decent size egg. I'm not looking for XLG, but enough to make breakfast would be great [​IMG]

    Give her a month... some increase size quickly and some slowly...

    I have 2 each
    GSL
    BA
    Easter Eggers
    Welsummer/Production red mix

    I think it's a BA that is laying the petite egg, and one of the GSL that is laying the other egg, but I have yet to catch either in the act [​IMG]
