I found these tiny eggs in the coop. I have easter eggers and lohman brown which are both medium size “breeds”. Is it possible the one of my young pullets is starting this small or is this one of my 3 year old quitting for good?

My chickens are all full size and I know some of my pullets have start laying already. Here is a full size egg, pullet egg and then the tiny one. The 2 tiny eggs from above were found 4 days apart.

first-time layers frequently start with undersize eggs. I've never had an older hen revert to appreciably smaller eggs; they just slow down & stop.

I got this today. My babies are only 12 weeks old. I'm not sure what's going on. My hens are on layer feed which I mix with regular flock raiser. Wonder if my babies are eating the layer feed instead?
