I have a 20 week old Easter Egger, Ramona, who is the smallest, runtiest chicken I own. She has been laying eggs for almost three weeks now. The first four were small, as I expected them to be, and came on back to back days. Now she is laying large, 2.0 - 2.2 oz eggs, and laying every two or three days. At first, I was worried that she was egg bound. She was in and out of the nest, and really struggling to lay. Then finally, after seeming to labor for two days, she laid her huge, beautiful, minty green egg. Each time since then, it is the same. She really seems to have a hard time laying, and I'm a little worried about her. Should I be? She squeals, and pants, and the roosters get very fussy over her. Is there anything I can or should do to help her? She eats and drinks like all the other girls. ~ although right after she lays, she stands in the water pan cooling off, guzzling water, and panting. It seems like watching a 5' tall, 100 pound woman naturally deliver a 12 pound baby...every other day! Here she is next to my SLW boy, same age. She is SO tiny compared to him and all the other girls.
