I went out and collected eggs today and one of them laid a very small egg. All the eggs prior to today have been normal size.

It happens sometimes.

Hopefully the hen will back to her normal self tomorrow. If the hen keeps laying small eggs, then I would think there was a problem.

occasionally a hen will get a "hiccup" wich pretty much is she got bothered and it messed up her egg cycle this normally clears up within a day and she's back on her regular cycle

Did she get a bit of a scare recently?

Did she stop laying for a few days and then start again? if so she may have just stopped and started up again and need to "get back in the groove"

did you add a knew member to the flock?

has there been any squabbles that have been a little bigger then a peck away from the feeder?

these eggs come small (this one even had a yolk.)
