    I got some pullets on Feb 5th, 2016.
    So they are about 19 weeks.
    Two of them just started laying. There eggs are almost smaller then silkie eggs.
    I was just wondering when there eggs will be bigger?
    They just started laying yesterday.

    Yes they are with older hens that are a year now. But they free range and get plenty of water so they should be pretty full. And they started laying yesterday so thats two eggs from my EE and one from either my BO or my BR.

    how can you be sure the eggs are from them and not the hens?

    Because I only have two Easter eggers... And all my others lay brown eggs. In case you didn't have Easter eggers they lay blue/green eggs. And All the other breeds lay brown eggs.

    These 3 small ones were layed yesterday, beside the 1 regular size egg. After few weeks the eggs become bigger as they get use to their internal laying machine cycles.
