    New layers start out with small eggs - their production system is just getting up and running and figuring out how to build an egg, once it has a little experience it can start focusing on building bigger eggs. Give it a few weeks.

    That's normal when they first start to lay, it takes a few months to get their systems up and running. Pullets eggs are also smaller than a hens so next year their eggs should be a little bigger, that being said my understanding of Wyandottes is that they lay small eggs for a big bird. However don't be discouraged, they will get better and more perfect. Making sure they have plenty of good feed, calcium protein and free fed grit is also very important as they start to lay
