    I had almost 50 chickens in my farm. The eggs were really tasty too. But nowadays the eggs of some of the chicks are too small and some have a yellowish color . 2 of the chickens died as they got attacked by a stray dog.
    What could be the reason for the color change ?

    Guess it depends on what they are eating. If they free range, then its likely that the vegetation and other stuff they eat change with the seasons and that could be a cause.
