I have 5 hens from last year that have been in molt for a few months and egg production has been nearly null. I added two pullets from this spring. The last few days there have been unfamiliar eggs, though I don't know if it's the pullets that started laying or if the older ones are starting to come out of their funk. The eggs aren't as small as I recall the "first eggs" being last fall, and actually, the one yesterday was quite large. It was just a very unique shape that I've never gotten before. Anyone ever noticed that a hen's trademark shape/size changes somewhat after they come back from their laying hiatus?
