    I have two silver laced wyandotte chickens and one has been laying for about two weeks and the other just started. They are laying really small eggs. I was just wondering how long will there eggs be small? Thanks Travis.

    SLWs lay "average" sized eggs during their prime laying period, 55 - 60 grams or about 2 ounces.

    Pullets will lay much smaller eggs, and, as hens get older, they will lay increasingly larger eggs.

    This is a really handy, dandy chicken chart to keep bookmarked:

    My SLW just started laying last week and even though her first egg was medium in size the rest have been quite small. The first was actually a double yolker!!
