    I posted these pics in a thread I started little bitty eggs before I seen this one. Have now been given two very little eggs. The top one is actually smaller than the brown one we got today. A couple of days before the top egg was laid the same hen laid a huge 31/2" extra large double yolker then she gave us this one the yolk was smaller than an eraser head really cute. Is this something normal or is something going on with my hens?

    Wow my Phoebe in the avatar is just over 2 years and she's laid maybe 8 eggs since last year. She is a good sitter and will sit on everyone elses eggs for them and she will go in and sit as if she is going to lay, does this daily she is not bound just barren.

    I have a hen like that too. Some hens can lay for years and years, and some not so much. It all depends on the hen. :)

    It's not uncommon for a hens eggs to change color. One of my hens went from having brown eggs, to brown eggs with tiny dark brown speckles, to brown eggs with big dark brown speckles. I'm not sure what causes their egg colors to change, but I know it happens to a lot of chickens. :D

    Well, we have received our first weird eggs. I have three of my twelve girls laying so far and their eggs have been absolute perfection from the very start, but I think someone else is trying to lay now and hasn't quite got the hang of putting the shell on the egg. We found this on the floor of the hen house. :)
