    my girl just started laying yesterday and her eggs are so small they don't even register on my egg scale. hubby and i would like to know when to expect the larger eggs? i have 1 SCM, 1BO, 2 EE and a silkie. i know the silkie eggs will stay small....but the other girls are standard size hens.

    I have no idea! My standard sized chickens are 26 weeks old and some have been laying for 7 weeks and their eggs are still pretty small. Occasionally I will get a GIGANTIC egg with 2 yolks in it, but that's rare.

    Quote:Give them a month or so and the size will increase on all but the silkie. They're just learning their business.
