    I have six month old chickens..different breeds. They are laying their little eggs right now and have been since about 21-23 weeks old. My question is how long will it take for their eggs to be large eggs? I have buff orps, dominiques, e.e.'s, standard cochins. I appreciate some help here.

    Mine took just over a month to go from pullet size eggs to the more normal range. From there it had to be close to a month before they where consistant in size every time.

    Thank you so much! I was getting a bit bored with the small eggs that brought so much excitement when they first started to lay. [​IMG]

    We gert plenty of large eggs from our mature chickens. We really enjoy the smaller eggs they fit perfectly in our egg poacher without spilling over.
