Abnormal egg

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a hen that laid an egg no shell, abnormal size-shape with about 2 yolks and it seemed to be hard broiled. What is going on? Can anyone shine any light on this?
My son and I have a white bearded silkie, a New Hampshire red, two barred rocks, an Ameraucana, and our newest baby ..a black cooper maran pullet.

It happens sometimes. Especially if the chicken is young and is just starting to get the hang of things. Even when they are older, there is sometimes some "oops" situations where the egg development process just doesn't go right. Nothing to be scared of. However, if this happens on a continuous basis then you should check to make sure she is getting enough nutrients from food. 

I became interested in hatching and raising chickens during a developmental genetics class where we manipulated the genetic code of chicken embryos. One year later, I have many chickens, mostly Ameraucanas and Silkies.
