    We've had our chickens for a wile now and have been getting regular sized eggs for a long time now and suddenly we started getting some tiny eggs!!! They're even smaller than the first eggs that we got! Does any one think they know why?[​IMG]:idunno:idunno

    Well, now there's a technical name for those too! I realised them happening, but we thought it was just because our hen was too fat or not getting enough nutrition, things went back to normal after about a week anyway. [​IMG]
