We are new and any advice would be great. We bought 4 red sex link last week and they're about 17 weeks. Reside in southern idaho. We are pretty excited to get some eggs!
Hi and welcome to BYC! Thanks for joining us!
We have had 3 very small eggs in the last 24 hours. Do they get bigger over time ?

Yes. It may take several weeks or months, but they should normalize to a typical size (which for Sex Links is large or extra large). You may also see oddities like double yolkers, shellless eggs, and extremely tiny fart eggs, as your pullet's ovaries figure out what they are doing.
