Egg spots on shell develop over days

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 


Egg on bottom right. After being stored inside, some of my blue/green eggs develop these splotches/spots..... Same hen. Trying to keep for hatching. Removed out of coop asap and kept in cool dark place.

Might be a porous egg...I have a few that do that....candle it to see.

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!!!

I believe it is the porous shell. Weird thing is they have calcium bumps too... So not lack of calcium i wouldnt think...?

I suppose both porosity and bumps could be present with a wonky shell gland.
