Why did this happen?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello! I am new to this site and a new chicken mum. Recently a couple of my hens have been exhibiting broody behavior, I have one sitting on a clutch of eggs as I write this, but I have recently found these little eggs out in the run. Why is this happening? Is it normal for them to lay these little yolk-less eggs?things that make you go hmmmm.....

Yes, it happens from time to time and shouldn't of concern.

young, new layers will lay the occasional "wonky" egg, really small, or no shell, or funny shape... as will older hens who are resuming after a Winter break.  nothing to worry about... it's usually just a hiccup during the time when they are getting their cycles in shape...  we call it "getting their plumbing in order"

What the others have said. Two years ago we got a 3 yolk egg from one of the hens. It is always interesting the first few weeks.
