Felt like it was wrapped in thick tissue paper.

Weird, maybe eggcessive or casportpony could help? The really green looking one picture is probably just a soft shell but the one that looks white in the pic(it could be just my computer showing the egg as white) but I don't know about that one it looks cracked but I don't know what the problem is on the outside.

Was the whiter one on the blue plate hard shelled?

 

Could be from different birds, brown eggs are white shell based with a brown coating.

Sometimes the brown coating doesn't get applied.

 

Are any of the birds acting ill?

Did they lay all winter with no problems?

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!!!

Both eggs are from the Ameraucana. I am still getting eggs from all the other hens on a regular basis. I am getting fewer eggs from that particular hen. She has not laid one since the last one( whiter one). All are acting fine.
