What is happening to Una's eggs?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi all

 

I am new to keeping those wonderful creatures and recently got myself 4 POL (hybrid) hens. Everything went really well and they all started laying in the last month. Then Una laid an egg without a shell yesterday! I did some reading and found this might not be anything to worry about as it apparently happens with hybrids every now and then.

 

This morning, however, Una looked like she was feeling a bit off, wouldn't move/interact a lot and then this happened (!!!):

 


Is this something to worry about? I'd appreciateyour help!

 

Thanks

Shari

Oooo that doesn't look good.

Is she feeling better after passing that?

Could a fluke...or signs of infection.

Keep a close eye on her.

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!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

I read a thread about lash recently (if you didn't just eat breakfast, check it out...)

Could that be it?

Thanks for getting back to me!

 

I am really not sure what it is. She seems better, but hasn't layed an egg since.
