Can a respiratory disease cause a hen to lay "fart" eggs?

    My chickens have been passing around a mild respiratory disease (coughing, wheezing, sneezing). Nothing serious as no one has died and it only lasts a day or two. Ever since one of them got it, she has been laying "fart" eggs. Does anyone know if respiratory disease could cause this? Will she start laying normal eggs again or is this permanent? Thanks. [​IMG]
