    My hen is laying small eggs! A few months ago she laid two wind eggs in the small week. She laid a wind egg yesterday, and one today too. I’m worried. Is she ok?

    If she's acting normal otherwise, she's probably fine. Wind eggs are often caused by glitches in the reproductive tract. Some hens are more susceptible to them than others. Small eggs can be a hereditary factor.

    As long as she acts normal, it's not life threatening. This may just be her "normal".
