    Got my first egg from my RIR!! 3 so far, however they are on the small side. Will the eggs increase in size as she matures?

    My girls as 19 weeks old today. The BR and the two EE's haven't started yet.

    Your eggs should increase in size as the hens mature and get their factories fine tuned.
    Oh and congrats on your first eggs!
