Hen boy, can you post a photo of one of the eggs your hens lay, at the side of a standard supermarket egg? It does seem very strange that they lay such small eggs. I have 2 ex battery hens, both lay different sized eggs. One laid large eggs 72g every other day or so and the other 52g every day. Mind you, they've stopped laying now. 🤔
