    well since he grew up and starting crowing, the eggs are 1 less and some are smaller???? can being bred do that??? im also gettin 5 instead of 6 a day, im sure winter has something to do with it, i do have a red heat lamp in the coop to keep the water from freezing, 24 degrees last night, but they all went out bugging today,

    Not all birds lay every day...matter of fact, most don't.
    The stress of a newly mature cockerel learning to mate can inhibit laying also.
