One of our leghorns laid her egg I brought it in the house bumped it on the inside

of the egg carton, it put a hole in the shell, I washed it off to give ton one of my cats, the shell crackled, I tried

to peel the shell, I could not get it to peel very easy, I had to make a real effort, when I poured it into the dish

it was thick I stuck my finger in the yolk and it did not brake, I even used a fork to poke the yolk same thing I stabbed

it few times before the yolk finally broke but did not run. Here are some pictures. what do you think is it a freaky thing or is it what.



Food has not change, roam free in the yard all day, layer feed, oyster shell, water, grit, scratch and peek.

May just be an odd egg :)  It happens every once in awhile.  It shouldn't be an issue unless it keeps happening.

I'm not real concerned since this as just the first time she laid a weird one, all three leghorn have not missed a

day since they started to lay in Dec. guess she just had to throw out one weird one.
