Ok so I have only been keeping chickens for about 3 years and I have 5 adult laying hens. This year I added several chickens to my flock (I have 16 now). The 2 oldest of the new girls are now of laying age. Betty started laying this week and is on her 3rd egg. My question is "Why in the heck is she laying quail size eggs?" I thought that Welsummers would lay large eggs. She is a large girl and very healthy. Has anyone had the same experience? I know sometimes they have to get their system in gear but I have never had a chicken consistently lay these tiny eggs. Here are the 3 eggs next to a medium and a Jumbo egg from my EE's And here you can see they are so small they dont even register on the scale!
