I got my cuckoo maran on the 2nd of july I thought she had been laying eggs all this time cause I was getting a light brown egg from my BO and a little darker egg from someone who I thought was the cuckoo maran but then today I found a VERY extremely dark egg but it was teeny tiny about 2 inches long I ran out of food Monday and have had to dig into my winter stash of cracked corn to feed them and then today I find this little egg. I think maybe she hasn't been laying all this time and I have a chicken laying that I wasn't aware was laying. The egg is a lot darker than the large egg I dont know if you can see the difference in the picture. My question is , is it possible corn could cause a chicken to start laying? The man I got her from said she never laid eggs for him.
