    We have a RR that was broody, we let her sit on a fake egg for a week, took it away when I found out she was not laying anymore. Today we gathered eggs and there was a egg a 1/4 of the size other. Our other 4 hens that are laying large eggs. Could these be because the broody hen is starting to lay again??

    It is most likely a deformity, but someone with more experience will probably be along soon...

    This happens once in awhile. It's called a fart egg.
