    my new chickens are just 5 months old but im only getting tiny eggs. my EEs have laid over a dozen eggs each but they are only 1/3 the size they should be. my brown egg layers are the same thing. usually i get a few small eggs then they get bigger. they are getting layer feed and calcium on the side. the eggs taste fine just small. any ideas?

    Pullets that are just starting to lay often lay eggs smaller than usual. They will get bigger eventually

    EE may take somewhat longer for egg size to increase, but you should soon be seeing somewhat larger eggs.
