My name is Denise and I am 62 years old and live in MI. I bought a dozen eggs a week ago and in the middle of the carton was a round egg. It looks like a golf ball. Is this common. I have never seen a round egg... it is pretty cool looking. No one I ask, including my 90 year old mother, has ever seen a round egg. I don't know what to do with it.

One of my hens is notorious for eggs that are difficult to tell which end is "up" coz they are so round.
I have some BO girls that lay rather long skinny eggs.
I guess it just varies by hen, and yes it can and does change some as they age
This is a good place to share my egg stories, I started over this spring with 10 brown bovines / comet type adult battery hens. Overall they've been laying 70% to 80%, Most of which are Large to X-large. But then almost daily they will give me a fluke like a soft rubber like shell, a real thin shell, a fart egg with no yolk in it, A few without any shell at all. They have oyster shell in a self feeder, they get 16% commercial feed, a little black oil sunflower seed, and some free range almost every day. I'm thinking they just got over worked
