Recently all of the eggs that my Polish lays smell like fish once I crack them open. I'm aware of the genetic mutation in brown egg layers, but I'm not finding much information on white egg layers regarding the stench. Further, she began laying about 5 months ago, but her eggs have only starting smelling fishy within the last two or so months. But it's every. single. egg. now and it's nasty! She seems perfectly healthy, and has had no dietary changes. All of the eggs from our other hens are fine, so I don't think it's a feed/storage issue. If she is affected by the mutation (if that's even possible), why would the eggs have only recently started to reek? I don't understand.
