I have just started getting eggs and I'm very excited. I get 1 good size brown egg and 1small lighter colored egg every day. I have some banties so I thought the small eggs were from a banty who is old enough to lay. I also have 4 standard size hens all of laying age and their combs are nice and red. Well, today I was out there for about 3 hours with them and I caught my New Hampshire X Barred Rock HUGE hen in the nest box laying an egg and guess what...........it was one of the small, lighter colored eggs. I can't believe a hen that size could be laying such small (but perfect) eggs. Can anyone enlighten me? This is the first time I've had chickens and just have had eggs for about 2 weeks now. I had 1 very, very, large brown egg earlier on and I thought the larger ones were from her.
