In my last flock, I had BRs, BOs, BAs, RRs. The first week or so of laying we had some small eggs, but then they settled into a solid routine of large and extra large eggs.

My new flock of 5 BRs and 5 Red Stars has been laying for over a month. Every day I get 1 large egg (2.0 oz+) and the rest are split between small and medium sizes (1.5 to 1.9 ozs). I feed them layer pellet with garden goodies (tomatoes are favs right now). They have full access to food and water every day.

I don't understand why only 1 hen is laying large eggs??!!

Suggestions?

Thanks!
Cindy
