    I have a Easter egger hen and she is about 7 months old. She is so small and I was wondering if she will lay eggs at this size. My other hens just started laying but they are huge compared to her. She is as big as my seabright roo and he is tiny. She is the white one. Thanks[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Sure she will. She might even surprise you and lay eggs the same size as the others.

    Thank you! Wow that's crazy I didn't think she would be able to. But I hope she gives me pretty blue eggs.

    Don't they also come in a bantam size? You didn't show a pic of her side by side with the others to judge whether she's just small or a bantam.

    I have 2 the same color. Mine lay white eggs, easter eggers don't always lay colored eggs, it's pretty much a crap shoot lol.

    Once yours gets her red comb she will start to lay.

    My two

    I will get a pic of her standing by the others tommrow. She is very shy and runs the other way when I get close. That's ok If she lays white eggs it doesn't matter to me lol yours looks bigger than mine.

    I have a young easter Egger that is also very small and lays small green eggs. She's been laying for a month and a half now. We ordered her from Dare To Dream Farm when she was around 10 weeks old. We didn't order a bantum and she doesn't seem to be getting any bigger. We don't care. We think her eggs are beautiful.

    She's a bantam, not a large fowl.
