    My two RIR pullets started laying a few weeks ago and they are producing a nice dark brown egg that is very small. Their eggs are about 1/3 of the size as my red-stars (not even the size of a golf ball).

    Whats the deal?

    They are just breaking in the machinery. Their egg size will increase.
