Does it happen in the chicken world for a hen to be laying nice size dark brown eggs to all of a sudden to change to smaller more white-tan eggs?

What kind of hen is it?
I have read that some of the Marans eggs fluctuate in egg color, but I am not sure if it is real gradual or abrupt...

Sometimes the color of shell will depend on how long the egg has taken to come down thru her duct work
, the longer it takes the darker the egg will be
I read an article on that and it stuck in my brain waves.
