    Hi i am just new to backyard chickens and not too sure if this is how you post a forum or not but i was just wondering could someone point me in the right direction??
    Also my hens are laying small brown eggs, the are hybrid brown layers. Do you know how long it will take for the eggs to increase in size if even???

    If they have only recently started laying this is normal. They're pullet eggs. They'll steadily size up to something in the large to extra-large range in about a month to six weeks.
