I have four chickens. One is a four year year old speckled bantam, who has always been a poor layer and is regularly broody. She hasn't laid at all for about a year. I recently got two gorgeous new girls, aged about fourteen weeks, one a Cream Legbar who should lay blue eggs. We got a nice brown egg after a few weeks, and then a brown egg and a tiny pale brown egg. First eggs are often small. I was mighty disappointed that my hen was not after all laying blue eggs. But... while we're getting a fairly steady supply of the brown eggs, the tiny pale eggs have not got bigger and there have only been a few of them, and they are exactly like the eggs my bantam used to lay. Is it possible that my Legbar hasn't actually started to lay yet (the two new girls are not exactly the same age, and different breeds) and that my bantam has come into lay again after a year? Is that even a thing? And if so, what might have jump-started her?!
