I have a regular Cochin hen and she usually lays small eggs sometimes 3 times a week. She started molting and didn't lay for about two weeks or three and I sat outside watching and waiting for her to lay, she usually waits for me to go in the house to lay. When I came out an hour later, there was an egg, this one is like the one I had found yesterday, a mystery egg, much smaller than her previous eggs which were pretty big for a Cochin. Why would she go smaller???
