    I am new to all of this. One of my golden comets started laying this week but the eggs are tiny. Is this normal? I love these chicks.

    I have golden comets and the first 13 eggs from 2 girls were between 42 and 48 grams. This morning I got my first medium size, at 50 grams. This photo is from 2 days ago.GC[​IMG]

    Can take anywhere from a week or so to months for pullet eggs to get bigger.
    I sell 'pullet dozens'......can take up to 18 eggs to make up 27oz XLarge dozen.
