    My 11 month-old BO has now laid 5 fart eggs in a row, no full-sized ones. She was a very reliable layer until a few weeks ago.

    I'm in my first year of chickens...should I be concerned?

    When they start laying, they may have more then one "fart egg." Don't worry... she'll start laying normal eggs soon. [​IMG]

    She laid normally for months, though. Then she had a winter slow down (not stoppage, though), and now this. It's like her eggmaker is broken. She's always laid more fart eggs than my other hens, just not more than one at a time.
