Fishy smelling eggs?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

This is in a white egg laying Polish chicken. It just began laying about 5 weeks ago. I have two Polish from the same breeder. Only one has stinky eggs. I am aware of the genetic issue with brown egg layers. Was not aware it could happen in white layers. She seems very active, healthy and her vent looks good.

Smells in eggs like that is usually from the diet, either she's eating something in the yard or there's something in your feed that's affecting her.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

I brake for squirrels.

It is kind of strange that she is the only chicken like that. They all eat the same thing.she has a sibling that looks identical to her and it's from the same clutch and she doesn't have stinky eggs. It's just weird.

Maybe she processes some component (or doesn't) of the feed differently? Maybe try switching feed and see if that makes any difference.
