    I have 10 hens and 1 rooster. They have been laying for about 8 months and it wasn't until today that I came across one "mini-egg" amongst the rest of the normal eggs. Is this normal? Are my hens healthy?

    Yes hens do that sometimes, if you cracked it you will probably find it has no yoke. Nothing to worry about

    Ok. Thank you. I haven't cracked it yet because it's so cute. Glad to know that there is nothing to worry about though.
