    I have been participating in the "how many eggs you get today" thread and realized that my chicken eggs seem smaller than they were. I also read where someone said the more the hen drinks the bigger the egg.

    So, I am wondering if the heat affects the size of the eggs. As in: Are my eggs smaller because it is hot?

    They have a small swimming pool of water. There shouldn't be any "shrinkage" for lack of water. Thanks, Sylvia
