Small eggs?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ive had my light Sussex hen for a year now, and she has suddenly started laying weird small spotted eggs. I originally had 2 chickens however one passed away over the Christmas break. Since then she has only layed a few eggs that we have actually seen as she has eaten a few of them, Im guessing due to stress. Usually she would lay very large eggs. Does anyone know why she would start laying small ones now?

:welcome  The stress of loneliness may be a factor, but more likely she is reaching the end of a laying cycle and is about to take a break from laying for a bit.
