    I'm pretty sure that it came from my Buff Orpington, since she is a week older than the rest of the group. The egg is pretty small, it's sitting in a thimble in the picture. The shell is nice and strong and has a very good shape. Almost didn't find it since its color is almost the same as the pine shaving it the nest.

    Question
    The eggs will get bigger, right?

    One of my hens just started laying. The first egg was small and covered with white spots. The second was a little rounder but perfect color. She skipped and day and her third was the same color just a lil bigger than the second. Waiting to see if she gives me another day!

    They will def get bigger. [​IMG] Sometimes first eggs are the size of robin eggs... and still, when my girls are over a year old, they lay "mistake eggs" -- those tiny ones.

    Oh, congratulations on your first little pullet egg! How exciting! No matter how many chickens I have, whenever one reaches point of lay and starts laying those beautiful tiny little pullet eggs, I get all giddy inside! Hehehe.

    And yes, definitely her eggs will get much, much bigger. [​IMG]
