    I noticed you didn't get an answer yet, so hopefully this will help. Pullet eggs are generally smaller than hen eggs, so that is probably why. After their first molt, the eggs get bigger. Pullet eggs also don't seem to hatch as well, although they can still hatch so I wouldn't give up on them. It is good you put some of each in. Let us know how they do.
