    Odd egg

    Odd egg

    Has anybody had an egg like this? They appear to be very small hard balls. Like round calcium sprinkles. If you scratch them with your finger they fall off the egg.

    It did not go too bad. The two new silkies looked happy but keep to their self in the coop. My other chickens spent most of the day in the yard. I did see one of my hens peck at the silkie rooster once. He was also bleeding a little from a spot on his head. I put Vicks on his head and hope that...

    new rooster

    Thank you for your input. I just pick up the rooster and he came with a hen too (both buff). They are a little older, about 9 months. It may help that my flock is small (4 hens). I plan to put them in tonight. Fingers crossed.
