    My hens have just started to lay eggs. The eggs are small is this normal? Will they get larger later on?
    Thanks

    First off [​IMG]

    My hens started laying about three weeks ago and I started with some really small eggs but now at least one of my hens are laying extra large double yolked eggs.

    Don't worry they will get bigger as time goes on.

    In the mean time - enjoy! [​IMG]
