Large and small
Pullet eggs, the first eggs from hens that have just started to lay, are always small. They will soon be normal size within a week or two or three. The large egg is from my one of my 3-year old chickens. A chicken's eggs get larger as they age, and my old girls are now laying jumbo eggs. The little egg is about two inches long, roughly half the size of the jumbo egg.
