    My Buff Wyndottes are laying very small bantam sized eggs. I would have said by the size of the birds, the eggs would be at least double this size!
    They are over 10 months old. Is it their age or did the breeder tell me wrong?

    First eggs are frequently small and generally increase in size during the laying cycle.

    How long has she been laying? If she has been laying for a a few months and hasn't got any bigger that's what your going to have, small eggs.
