Mini or fart egg 3 days in a row. Should I be concerned?

    I have 6 hens, one just returning from being broody and an 11 week old. Each day there is a small mini egg in the nest box. We have had probably five of these previously over the last two years but never day after day.

    Is this sudden frequency a concern?

    How small? Like a pullet egg?

    Birds coming back into lay can lay small eggs for while at first.
    I doubt an 11 week old is laying.
