I'm new at raising chickens. I live in the city limits so I only have 4 hens. I bought 2 RIR pullets from my local feed store. They just started laying a week ago (I feel like a proud mama.) One has laid 5 dark brown eggs consecutively, but her eggs are tiny...all exactly the same size...about the size of a 50 cent coin. The other one has laid only one egg which is a lighter, paler shade of brown and medium in size. Just wondering if it is common for a new layer to lay such tiny eggs. Also, since the other hen's egg is a different color, is she mixed? The two hens look exactly alike...a deep rusty red color. I love them no matter what...just curious.
