Something Old, Something New, Something Big, Something Small

A tiny egg was a pleasant surprise this afternoon. The tiny egg means a young hen laid her first egg. These baby new eggs are always fun to find. It doesn’t take long before young hens lay full size eggs, which makes these tiny eggs special.

    What size chick comes from that tiny egg, compared to a regular chick?

    • Those tiny first eggs aren’t viable. Often they don’t even have yolks, or much of a yolk. Hens will lay small eggs for a week or two before their eggs are full size.
