    My 3 year old hen laid two small eggs. She did the same last week and I increased her calcium (oyster shell). She has no other symptoms, but has been sneezing alot.

    Here is a picture of her eggs. tiny eggs.jpg

    Oh wow those are some small Eggs! I've heard of fairy eggs but I don't think those are fairy eggs. It could be that she's getting older.

    Chicken store stones in gizzard and eat pebbles all the time. They will release the worn-out useless stones coughing / sneezing it before to replace it with new stones. Those are most probably just one of them. Not eggs. Fairy eggs are a thing of young pullets and the same chicken would not lay a gray egg one day and a red-brick egg the next day.

    Try to break one and take a look inside and we'll find the answer.

    Wondering if this is a late April Fools post?

    Could be. April is the cruelest fowl.
