I GOT MY FIRST EGG!!!! i am so excited! but i have some questions. the egg was very small, alot smaller then i expected, so do they get bigger with practice? and when i found it this morning it was already cracked, and it looked frozen,( we are in the middle of winter and temps latey have been freezing here)so i figured it had froze, expanded,and cracked. but should i start giving them oyster shell? but then that left me wondering, do they usually lay at night or during the day, or just whenever they feel like? I'm also wondering once they start laying is it pretty continuous,they arn't gona like stop for a couple weeks then start again? and lastly im trying to figure out if it was my rir or my jerseys, they both lay brown, i'm wondering if any of you rir or jersey owners can tell me how big the eggs get compared to grocery store eggs? or what they look like, ect ect.... this egg was very light brown( i thought it was a pink/biege rock at first) and when i brang it in and washed it off i noticed it had speckels all over it.
