    Congratulations on the first egg! [​IMG]

    I think the first few eggs are a little smaller than the ones they will lay in the future. Once they lay for a month or two, the size gets pretty consistent. As for laying everyday, it depends on amount of sunlight she gets, feed, fitness, and just plain individuality.
