    My chickens are nearing a year old and have been laying for months now. I've been getting decent sized eggs all along, but this week, I've been getting a lot of small eggs!

    Any idea what could cause it? Could it be because I don't have their heat lamp on every night since it has been getting warmer?

    They are all Polish hens, just under a year old. Thanks.

    Eggs size changes for no reason that I have found. I have hens that will lay all different sizes all week long.
