    all of them are fairly sized and fertile when i crack them open.

    they are slightly smaller than regular eggs. is it worth a shot, or should i wait a few more weeks?

    they have been laying for about 3 1/2 weeks, but im chompin at the bit to set some! so excited!

    There fine but the babys will grow up to be slightly smaller adults.

    Quote:Do they really grow up to be smaller? I was shipped some pullet eggs, so I'm setting them, but am hoping they do well. It seems like their genetics would be the same regardless the size of the egg and that any initial disadvantage would eventually disappear??

    You would think they would catch up but the study I read about pullet eggs said they never did.
