    I have 5 red sexlinks and 4 EE's and they have been laying large and extra large eggs. All of a sudden they are almost all laying medium eggs. We have not changed anything but the eggs are smaller. Can somebody please explain this to me? I'm am very confused at this point and would just like someone to help me out.

    Thanks in advance for any advice

    Egg sizes change, not much you can do about it. Make sure they are getting enough protein, calcium and are well hydrated.
