    This is my first year with chickens and thus will be my first winter....I know with the shorter days it will effect they laying....Will the eggs tend to get smaller??...Just wondering so I know if I should look for that....I have 3 Golden Comets and 3 RIR's that are laying

    No, the eggs will not get smaller. They will get bigger up to a year old and stay the same. After the first molt they will get bigger again.
