    What do you think happened here? These are from my Barred Rocks and Red Stars-all of them are in laying mode but still under a year old. All are laying daily except one who is laying every other day. This morning I found this little nugget in their fave nesting box. Should I worry?

    I wouldn't worry. :) Sometimes we have big eggs, other times little eggs. But that's my 2 cents.
