When I was a kid, my grandfather used to raise rhode island red chickens and we'd get large size eggs consistently from his hens when they were about a year or older. About 2 years ago, I started raising rhode island red chickens, but I notice that sometimes they will lay large eggs one day and medium to small sizes at other times. They get the same amount of food daily and clean water everyday. So, my question is why is this occuring?
