    Hi I have a black sex link (we think) a Buff Orpington, Wyndotte, and an easter egger. They started laying the last week of November. All of their eggs have been size small. The easter egger is laying mini size. Just wondering if the eggs will get larger the longer they lay?

    Thanks!

    Yes, in time as their bodies adjust, they get bigger. Then after their first adult molt they get even bigger.
