    (was a pet that escaped enclosure only to have hawk kill her) and when cleaning I found several yolks(varying sizes) so I assume thats normal? She had just laid her egg(thats why she escaped-to do it in "her" place) and I remember seeing this in other hens I have processed but never asked until now.Normal to have multiple small yolks?

    Yes that is normal. Hens always have yolks forming inside them.

    TY. Thought it was common sense but my thoughts are frequently incorrect! She was full of them because she was a young layer, I assume.
