Eggs with a flat side and a hole or crack in them

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Our girls are on chicken food pellets, and have oyster in the grain plus an extra bowl of it. They get fresh veggies and fruits every day. They are about 2 years old. Last year we had no problems. 1 egg per chicken a day on the average. This year they all are not laying daily and one of the brown hens lay eggs with a flat side and sometimes broke. Whats the problem???

I forgot the name that it's called, but it's caused by a 2nd egg entering the 'chute' before the first egg has finished forming... if it's once in a while, no biggie, but if it is often that hen may have a reproductive issue...
