    Are you positive it's not a different hen laying that egg?

    Idk, I would maybe say a hormonal or bodily change or else maybe if she has lower levels of calcium or something? I don't pay attention to which hens of mine lay which eggs, so idk if it's normal. Cayuga ducks start laying dark (almost black) eggs in early spring, then they are a light gray by fall. Not sure what causes them to do that though. As long as she appears normal and healthy, I wouldn't be worried about it.
