I'm not new to rearing chickens. Have seen some people think that too much feed will lead to fat layers and they won't lay as good. So this year iv'e tried feeding my new layers 1/4 lb of 17% layer each a day. the birds have just started laying about a month or so . ( used to feed my layers free choice and free rangeing summer and free choice penned up in winter , lots of snow here)one pen of birds are laying well the other ones not so well and egg size is usually medium. barred rocks , light sussex and americaunas. will giving them more feed a day help increase egg size.
