A pullet is a hen that is under one year old and has only been laying eggs for a few months. Pullet eggs eggs are the first eggs laid by hens at about 18 weeks old. These young hens are just getting into their egg-laying groove, meaning these eggs will be noticeably smaller than the usual eggs you come across BUT because these are among the first eggs ever laid by the young hens, they contain the vital essences of the chicken, stored up for her entire life. No subsequent eggs will taste the same. What they lack in size is made up for in rich, savory flavor. Like their larger cousins, pullet eggs are perfect for baking, deviling, or simply frying.
