I'm wondering if anyone could give me some ideas why my older hens might be suddenly laying eggs that are about 1" to 1 1/2" high? No joke, they are that small. My pullet eggs were bigger than these ones are. They aren't happening frequently but often enough in a flock of established layers to cause me to scratch my head as to what it could be. It isn't just my 3-yr old Welsummer that is doing it either, I've had these oddly small eggs from either my Chanteclers or my Jersey Giants (can't tell which one is laying which egg ) and my Minorcas too. The only ones who haven't so far are my Ameraucanas. I'm assuming that it is a nutritional issue of some sort, but can't find if it's too much protein or too little. They are on a good-quality 18% layer pellet with scratch daily and any garden weeds and such too.
