    I hard boiled some eggs today, including one from one of my RIRs - it was much smaller than usual, which she does sometimes. When I peeled this egg, it had several areas that were gray and stringy looking. What was it? I threw it out, but wonder if it might mean this hen is getting sick. Any ideas? Thanks!
