    that are smaller than normal? Is that generally a new hen starting out? Or could it be anything else? I have four hens I'm waiting on, so I'm thinking the peewees are theirs? They are about 1 oz, wheras my other girls are putting out just a smidge over 2 oz.

    (on an aside, isn't it wild how each girl lays a particular looking egg to them? Friends with considerably more livestock weren't as interested in this, than I was! LOL)

    they call them pullet eggs, the first few eggs from a newly laying girl! [​IMG] then there are "fart" eggs, which don't have a yolk and are very tiny - those can appear at any time.
