Grandpa discovers the egg layer

Grandpa was keeping an eye on the hens this morning and solved the mystery of who has been laying the eggs. It turns out the Leia has been living up to her name! I had thought that Kiev was laying the eggs as they are quite small (aparently Orpingtons lay quite small eggs and Rhode Island Reds relatively large ones). However I have since learnt from a former chicken owner that the initial eggs that any hen lays are quite small, they will get bigger.
