    I have two polish hens. One that did not lay at all last summer/fall, but she began to molt right after we got her. The other started laying within a week or so. The Crest on the non laying one is much larger(making me think she is older). They would be my only white layers. I found an egg today half the size of the ones that were layed last season and it is somewhat bullet shaped. Could this be from the other hen, or just the layer getting back into her cycle?

    I would say her getting back in the cycle. I just got a egg from my polish that was bullet shaped. The next egg was normal.
