    my hens lay everyday and eat all the time and their eggs are still small btu just before they take like a break from laying eggs thier eggs become big
    it seems like they never get to the stage of being big just get slowly bigger till the have a break then when they restart laying the egg is small again like a pullet

    How old are they? You know, the seasons affect laying too - as, it seems, nearly everything does!
