I got the egg on the left today from my BR hens. On the right is what we normally get, though one of the smaller ones. I have six hens in that pen and they are 2 and 3 years old - no pullets. We have had these hens for about seven months and usually get 2-4 eggs/day. Four is the most we have ever gotten in one day, so I have always suspected that one or two of them may not be laying. My question is - if one of the hens had not been laying for awhile, would she lay pullet-like eggs? Or is it possible that she has never layed before and is just NOW starting? The only change recently is that we removed the mean rooster and replaced him with two of his 5-month old sons. The rooster was mean to us, but I never noticed him being too hard on the hens, however, the hens seem to be happier with the new roos.
