Tiny Egg Thursday

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Soooo. The girls have been laying for 3-4 months now.  I got 5 eggs from my 6 Barred Rock  hens today.  Of the 5 normal eggs, the average weight was 1.71 ounces.  The tiny egg tipped the scales at 0.85 ounces.  Is this normal?  Thoughts?

Eh... once in awhile that can happen, I'd not be concerned unless it become consistent. 

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
