    I have a RIR I got last february. She was an adult, at least a year old when I got her, so not sure of her exact age. She laid beautiful speckled decorated eggs for a few months, then stopped in early summer. She had what I believe was sour crop a month or so after stopping laying, but recovered from that. Didn't start laying again though. Then last fall she laid a gross tumor looking thing, and I figured she was done for good. She's been hanging out around the nest boxes though, and today I found a pullet sized egg that doesn't look like anyone elses. It has speckles and looks a lot like her eggs she used to lay, just not quite as prettily decorated. Has anyone had an internal layer recover? Will she lay normally or start back internally again?

    Maybe she passed an ovary.
