    I have 2 RI hens that have been laying for almost 3 weeks, but they are barely larger than a ping pong ball. How long before they start getting larger?

    How old are the chickens? Do they have plenty of food and water all the time?

    Most of my backyard eggs are not the extra large ones that you see in the store. They measure out to be medium eggs. Are yours medium eggs? You can tell by weighing them. It may be that yours will lay only medium eggs.
