    I have 3 Astrolorp and 3 Plymouth rock- they also started laying about 3 weeks ago. The eggs are slightly larger than the first eggs, but still smaller than "normal/store bought". I'm using 2:1 in recipes for now.[​IMG]

    Give them a month to work out the kinks.

    Some don't lay larger until after their first molt.

    Quote:T/Y Cluckie We thought they laid 1 or 2 small eggs then went to normal size.
