    Yes, they will get bigger. It can take at least a month. And you're more likely to get double yolkers in the beginning when their systems are getting regulated. So it should be soon! [​IMG]

    Yes, they will get bigger. They should be full size within a month.


    Given that it is getting colder amking sure they have pleanty of ice free clean water will be key to thier production.

    Really full sized eggs within a month? Like they wont get any bigger than that? I have an orp, wyandottes and a variety of rocks. Everything I've read about these say they lay large eggs. The eggs they are laying now are considered medium and they have been laying for at least 2 months now if not longer. I really was hoping for bigger eggs to come....
