    Hi All, I have 2 chickens that are 5 mo. old - one or both (can't tell) just started laying eggs. The eggs are very small - only about 2" long. My other 2 chickens (that are older) are laying normal to jumbo size eggs. Is there a reason why the eggs are so small or is it because they/she just started laying and they will get bigger in time?

    Thank you!!

    Oh Thank you! Wasn't sure if they needed a little "extra" something to eat in order to beef up the eggs size.
