I’ve had a barred rock and a white leghorn for a couple years, they were a gift from my neighbor. This spring we got a few orpingtons (The orange colored hens in the picture) and now that they are finally laying, their eggs are so tiny! Is this normal for the breed or will they get bigger? We laugh every time we see the tiny eggs! I posted a picture of the tiny egg next to my other hen’s egg. Also, any idea what type of Orpingtons these are? One of them has yellow legs and the others have white legs.
