    One of my newly adopted EE laying hens, after 7-weeks here in her new home, finally laid an egg today. Now she seems to be wheezing, or honking, with every breath. She is still eager for treats and running around and pooing normally, she just honks with each breath. Is this something I should be concerned with? She was completely fine this morning, before she laid. Did she hurt herself laying? It was a fairly large egg.
