    I've had my laying hens for approximately 2 months. They were 10 months old when I got them. They are laying regularly but in the past month I have noticed an increase in egg size. We did change from pellets to mash about 3 weeks ago. Could it be because of the mash or is this normal for a hen of this age?

    It's normal for the eggs to get larger as the pullet matures.

    Ok, because someone told me that once they have been laying for a while, the egg size shouldn't change!
