    Hi guys, does anyone have any pics of a pekin bantam egg size compared to normal size or store bought standard size egg? I know they will be small but just wondering what to expect. I have two POL pekins right now that I am waiting to start laying and two maybe three coming in a weeks time. Even though they are small I'm looking forward to the arrival of regular eggs, its like a little gift every morning. Thanks!

    Oh wow! That's not too small at all. I will be happy if the eggs turn out like that. Maybe someone has a picture of a bantam Cochin egg and a regular egg which would be a similar comparison? Thanks for the photo!
