    It weighed 1.5 oz so it's still a pee wee(small is1.6-1.75 oz). Still I am happy as heck. The other 3 Australorps can't be far behind. My ISA Browns are all laying large eggs now(2.1-2.25 oz) and I got one the other day that weighed 2.5 oz.(1/10th oz shy of jumbo). They are around 23 weeks old. Same for the ISA's
