    Well, this morning when I went out to water and feed everybody, I saw a tiny little pullet egg laying on the bottom of my Sebright pen. It was so tiny and light. I dont even think there is a yolk in it. It feels like just the shell. Ill have to candle it later.

    Cool beans! Congrats! My first brahma egg was so tiny I was sure it couldn't have a yolk either. Turns out it was mostly yolk, very little white.

    Quote:Yup. that is what it looks like. A huge air sac, and hardly any white, with mostly yolk. Ill crack it open later. I also got my 2nd pullet egg from my Light Brahmas (standard size). They are 21.5 weeks old.

    How old is your Sebright? I'm waiting for my one to start laying but so far only the Brahmas are laying.

    I think it is around 17-20 weeks old.
