    The other day I went in to collect my eggs and there was one very small egg. All my hens are over a year so their not new to laying. I dd not really think much of it. I opened it up the next morning and there was no yoke. I do have two Buff Orp's that are getting up there in years. Is this a sign their allmost done? Is it a freak of nature? Or do we have a helth issue? Any advice would be great.

    Oh, I also had a shellless egg last week, come to think of it. Hummmm??????

    Thanks, gina
