Unusual egg discoloration

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have gotten 4 eggs with brown circles on the large end. I'm thinking it's just one of 8 young hens that have only been laying for about 6 months. Can someone tell me what this is? Thank you in advance for answers.

You might look through these. I think it is the one called “Calcium Coated” in the second link. I’ve had some of those in the past. They are fine to eat.

A pic that's in focus would help immensely. 

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!!!
