Alright :welcome great to have you joining the BYC flock :frow

 

 

 

Funny symptoms I know I have several rir chickens who have produced an off yellow colored egg and thought it odd and one is in a cage by her self right now as I am watching her for other things before I sell her but I normally add calcium to their diet like oyster shell or crushed up and dried egg shells and up the protein ..

 

The only question I would have could your chickens be getting around some kind of poison and maybe where a vehicle might have been worked on .

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

You may want to post on the "Chicken behaviors and egg laying," thread.   I think you are telling us - your chickens have been having trouble laying and the eggs come out broken. IF  eggs break inside the chicken  this can cause  serious problems.  Please  post on  "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thread  as soon as possible.
