*BUMP*

 

Anyone?

 

Performed search within the BYC website on the word "Chalaza." Viewed some interesting pictures.

 

But why is my hen laying this? My hens have adequate access to oyster shell calcium.

Try searching "lash eggs". Threads on that topic may provide the answers you're looking for.

I've never gotten anything like that, so I'm not much help hmm.png

I don't think that's a lash egg....it's basically a softshell egg with excess trailing membrane.

How old is the bird that laid it and how long has she been laying?

 

I'm betting it's new layer.....or an older layer at end or beginning of cycle(before or after molting)

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
