    I walked into the coop and found this egg laying on the floor next to the hanging feeder. It is so small! I have 4, four month old pullets. Could this egg be from them? It looks justt like a chicken egg as far as texture (Has extra calcium bumps) and color.

    It's only a fart if it has no yolk, right?

    I had the same thing with a couple of Rhodie's they laid a little yolkless egg every other day for a couple of weeks. At first I thought quail were somehow getting into the coop. They laid large eggs on the days I didn't get a small one. I did switch their feed a week before this started I went to Layena instead of the feed store brand, had some problems with moldy feed. The feed store guy said it wouldn't hurt the birds, I wasn't taking chances so started buying feed at another place and its all that they carry for laying mash. So far its working out great, the girls took some time to adjust, Have you switch feed lately? Could be the answer.

    Quote:Well, I have RIR, SLW, and BO that are actually only 3 1/2 months old, and I am not sure which one of then laid it. I have not switched their feed at all. I switched to flock feed when they were about 2 months old so they could be mixed with the adults. I am thinking if at about 4 months old I could switch them all back to layer feed??
