I just recently got back into raising a backyard flock after not having one for quite a few years and I bought a dozen peeps and now they have just started laying eggs. I have 8 Rhode Island Reds, 2 CooCoo Marans and 2 Americuna's. My question is why are they laying such small egges? Do they start out small and get larger? I do not remember having this happen before. I am feeding Layena and Scratch. They shells are wonderfully hard but they are just a little bigger than Bantam eggs. They have a large area to roam in. I have a small farm.
