I have a young neighbor who purchased some RIR chicks from a feed store. They grew to be large, beautiful hens, and he kept one very impressive rooster. (8 hens and 1 roo). They were laying great--7 or 8 eggs a day--and had been laying about 2 or 3 months when I got eggs from him and hatched about 40 chicks. Sold the roos and kept the 19 pullets. They hatched Dec. 15, so now are not quite 4 months old. During the last week, I have gotten 5 eggs. All these eggs are TINY!!! A little smaller than my Silkie eggs. I realize pullet eggs are usually smaller, but these are LITTLE. Also, I didn't figure RIR's started laying at less than 4 months. The eggs they hatched from were average size--anyone got any ideas about why mine are so small? The chicks have always had fresh water and full feed--chick starter/grower. Now changing them over to layer pellets. Suggestions?
