|Close up of speckled egg|
The close up doesn't show the colors the best, but it does show the tiny freckles. As you can see these eggs are really tiny, but they will get big pretty soon. Most chickens lay small eggs when they first start, with them gradually getting larger. I have even had hens in their second year lay even larger eggs than in their first year, although they don't generally lay as many of them.
