    Ok so I have a question about egg laying. I have one of our chickens that has been laying small eggs like quail egg size or maybe slightly larger. I do not know which one is doing but I wanted to make sure was not a diet deficiency or something serious. Any suggestions and answers greatly appreciated

    How long has your hen been laying? Usually they will start out laying small eggs and they will get larger as time goes on.

    They are all a year old as of October 31st. Have a total of 3 chickens. I think I know which one it is but not 100%
