BYC, Back in July I bought 9 new pullets for my chicken house and they started laying about 2 weeks ago, but they're laying such tiny eggs. The birds are Rhode Island Reds and Partridge Rocks, and they are full grown. The eggs are incredible small, probably less than two inches high. It's almost comical how small they are. I can't get over the novelty of it, and it has been very funny, however I need to know two things - 1. When will this incredibly small egg phase pass? I know that pullets lay "pullet eggs" that are typically smaller than eggs in later stages, however I do not recall my original birds in my flock laying eggs so small when they were pullets. 2. Has anybody ever had chickens lay eggs that were so small? I mean, these eggs are tiny, and I'm just wondering if this is common of pullet eggs? Below is a picture of one of my older chicken eggs next to the pullet eggs I have been getting. The small egg is probably bantam size.
