    [​IMG] My silly lil hen Hot Wing just laid her first egg three days ago! She laid her 3rd today. She's a 17-18 week old brown leghorn! Can't wait until her 3 sisters follow suit!

    Ok, so a lil question. I have three older girls who lay their own particular shape and color of eggs, but when I read up about the brown leghorn breed they are known for laying large white eggs. Hers are tiny... Like... tiny. I know the first few will be smaller. Here's my question: How long does it take before they start getting bigger?
