My hens are about 13 months old. They have been laying since last July. In the beginning I got the pullet eggs but as the hens matured the eggs got bigger, most to jumbo size. I still get jumbo from most but I do have some hens laying smaller eggs recently. They are free range during the day and put themselves up at night. They receive scratch and laying pellets plus a head of cabbage every other day along with whatever they find during the day outside. Any ideas on why some of the eggs have gotten smaller?
