Why do younger hens produce smaller eggs?
Hens, like most living things, take time to mature and develop their reproductive systems. When a young hen first begins laying eggs, her body is still growing and adapting, and her reproductive system is not yet fully developed. As a result, the eggs she lays during this time tend to be smaller in size. However, as the hen continues to mature and grow, her eggs will gradually increase in size and become more consistent in shape and texture. With proper care and nutrition, most hens will reach their peak egg-laying capacity within their first year of life, and will continue to produce high-quality eggs for several years thereafter.
As proud egg farmers, we have learned to be patient with our hens and give them time and care to grow and develop - the delicious, nutritious eggs they produce are well worth the wait!
