Have you seen this before?

I have a hen that lays eggs that has a "loose" air sack and it is made up of about 20 smaller bubbles. 

 

 

 

Here is is a little darker to maybe see it better.

I have never seen that before it's a little strange, maybe someone who knows more about that can help, I'm curious to know what caused it.

I've seen that before, but only in shipped eggs! Looks like her eggs are shaken, not stirred gig.gif

Seriously though, I have no idea what would cause that in a freshly laid egg. Hopefully someone with more knowledge will pop in soon.

I had a hen (pullet) that when she first started laying for about the first couple months the air sells were loose like that and often ruptured. I don't know why, but whatever it was, balanced itself out and the air cells started being normal.
