    How big are your Phoenix eggs? I started getting the tinest little white eggs this week at 17 weeks 5 days and I'm wondering who is laying them. The eggs are under an ounce and do have yolks. I also have a silver leghorn and a b rown leghorn but the was the 1st to start squatting.

    They are really tiny, my one Phoenix hen is 1 1/2 years old and still they're very little. Makes sense becauses she's such an itty bitty thing. [​IMG]

    They are a very light cream color, compared to the stark white you would get from a Leghorn.

    Thanks for the response [​IMG] I am sure that it is my Phoneix girl, the eggs are not bright white and I took a peek at their vents today. I am really surpised that she is the 1st one out of a bunch of BSL, RIR, BR, and Leghorns (silver & brown) to lay and she layed 3 days in a row (she took today off). Hoping the rest follow her lead this week [​IMG]
