Grit or pieces of shell inside eggs

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
One of my girls has been laying eggs with grit or maybe pieces of eggs inside. Has anyone experienced this and maybe know what causes this?

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! From what you have described I would say your hen is laying eggs with calcium deposits on them. Here is a great article ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/common-egg-quality-problems
#8 covers calcium deposits.

Be sure to ask any more questions that you may have, everyone here to help.

Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat frow.gif

Welcome!

 

Is the grit or shell on the INDISE of her egg or on the outer shell?

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
