So....we found what appears to be a pullet egg in the hen house...u know, real small like a bantam egg...my chickens are all standard sizes. My youngest chickens are 10 months old--and my oldest are one year 9months. What would cause that small egg now. I routinely collect 24 or more eggs a day and have 27 hens (I think)... Someone once told me that when u get an egg like that it is either a chickens first or last egg. Is that true...?? Could it mean that one of my --not even two year old hens--is getting ready to stop laying?? I'm pretty sure my all my babies (10 months old) have all been laying. The breeds of the young ones are leghorns, BO, black stars, Delawares, and new hampshires..
