Hi,

I have a 23 week old White Leghorn that started laying eggs at about 17 weeks old, they were small and the whites were watery. She took a break from laying for about 5 weeks after only laying 5 eggs, last week she started laying again and her eggs are still small and the whites are watery. The eggs are only 1 to 1.25 ounces. Is there something i should be worried about or is this totally normal? I know there can be glitches in a pullets system at first but none of my other girls are having this problem. They get mostly layer crumble with some treats but I keep the treats to a minimum. any help or advice would be appreciated.

I think she's fine. She's probably working though the glitches.

How long can it take for pullets to work through the glitches? I expected small eggs but small and watery I didn't expect. When I tried cooking them, I end up with mostly just the yolk as the rest of it shrivels up to nothing.
