When I know that I won't be getting my egg cartons back, I put my eggs in brown paper bags.  I decorate them with stamps, (and or) stickers, put shredded paper inside so the eggs won't break, and punch 2 holes at the top and tie a ribbon to hold it together.   I have had more complaments on my bags.  For easter, I use spring-time stamps with different color inks, for example. I even put a "suprise" like a piece of home-aid candy if I have any available.
thanks everyone!!!!! i won't worry as much anymore, or think that i am a horrible chicken keeper!!! i have gotten wrinkled eggs also. THANKS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One day this week, I went to the chicken  coop to gather all of my eggs. I found one that did not have a shell??? It was the feel of jelly-fish (kind of). I have never had this happen before. What causes this, and is this serious?  Will this keep happening?

All 23 of my chickens are loosing their feathers on their butts, and they have started pecking each other until they are all bleeding.  This weekend, I sprayed all of them with blue coat to see if that will help them.  they are eating 16% laying pelets. Could that be doing it??? thry also get some table scraps about only twice a week. has anyone ever heard of this???
thank you everyone!!! i think i understand now. I am having good luck with my 23 chickens, laying about 11 eggs a day ( in louisiana). I got them in the spring last year. i really enjoy them!!!  thanks again for answering my silly question!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just wanted to know if you can put a capon instead of a rooster with a flock of chickens ( i have 23 chickens)? I don't want any fertilized eggs, but I want all of my chickens to lay. Is this even possible? Or am I just crazy thinking?  I am actually scard to ask this!!
It was 53 degrees this morning in Baton Rouge, La. It feels wonderful today!!! My chickens will love the weather!!  I have 24 chickens, and yesterday I got 16 eggs, which is the most I've gotten so far. I wish we can have this kind of weather all the time!!!
This is Monique Gerald form Greenwell Springs, La again. (Just north of Baton Rouge) I just wanted to tell everyone hello again. I also enjoy reading and learning about my chickens. I work in a dentist office, and the people I work with think I'm crazy for having chickens. I tell them they are crazy for living in the city!! It's nice to have positive people at BYC I can relate to!!!
