    I've searched this forum and cant seem to find my answer. I have an 18 mo EE hen who was laying perfectly normal eggs. In august she
    went through a molt. When she started laying again her eggs were very small- 1/2 the normal size. Does anyone know why this is happening? They have a slightly smaller yolk and whites that seem overly runny.
    Thank you!
