    Congrats! You know, my entire original flock of ten started out laying normal sized eggs. Never saw a small pullet egg till the "Second Wave" of girls I hatched. Now, they tend to lay small eggs for months before they get larger, for some reason.... Another thing to blame on the weird weather phenomenons and/or the earth's tilt changing, LOL.

    I have since gotten 2 more (very small) eggs.

    However, we cracked the first open to eat and it had a double yolk!!!!! How cool is that to get with a first egg!?

    Does that happen often?

    I certainly would think that a double yoker on a first egg would be unusual, but I'm no expert. I thought when i saw the pic that it could easily be a double yoker. Bet she was glad to get that one laid. [​IMG]
