    I do remember that mine was a hair smaller than 1 1/4, but the pic made it look bigger. I too am wondering what causes this. This one didn't have a yolk, but I've gotten smaller ones that did have a yolk, go figure...

    If it is their first egg, or so they are often very small, other than that I'm not sure either..........[​IMG]

    * I got a smaller than usual egg from Miss Chook today, too. Not as little as yours, but a good 1/4" smaller than she has been laying. Only change has been the addition of some sunflower seed meats to her treat mix.
