    ...should this concern me? 4 girls are a year and a half old, regular layers; an egg a day. Yesterday there is a tiny egg in the middle of the floor and three normal size eggs in the nest boxes. hmmm

    No not at all some hens like to lay in diffrent places other than their nest box. If they are RIR's I'm not sure about their egg size though.

    My cochin when beginnng to lay,
    Layed an egg the size of my thumb nail.
    I call it a practice egg, Others call it a gas egg.

    But these girls have been laying for over a year now. The first couple of eggs last year were small and soft...this egg is perfectly round, like a marble and hard; nickel sized though. [​IMG] Waiting to see what happens today, two eggs so far...
