I brooded out my chicks in early autumn so they would lay in the spring.
They were laying nice big brown eggs but I noticed in the last couple days the eggs are getting smaller.
When do chickens molt and does that cause smaller eggs? They are 9 months old now.
Thanks!

Thank you very much, I was trying to decide if I was crazy (thinking they were smaller--but they are!) or just doing something wrong.
