    Wrinkled Egg?

    Found this interesting. An egg from one of my Rhode Island Reds. The egg is a taller egg than they usually lay and it’s wrinkled on top. Why does this happen?

    Hen Laid Two Eggs in One Day. Should I Be Concerned?

    Hi all! So I’ve got a 2-year-old (almost 3-year-old) Partridge Olive Egger hen named Jennie. I let them all out into their pen this morning and collected an egg that was in their nesting box from my Golden Laced Wyandotte, Poppy. When I went back out to bring them in for the night, I saw two...

    Curious pattern on egg

    I’m a little curious about this marking on an egg i got about a week or 2 ago. I know the egg is fine but i’m just wondering what causes it? We’ve gotten maybe one with a similar but much less noticeable pattern but other than that they’re all normal. Is the hen okay? Is it something painful...

    Is this duck egg fertile or just cracked?

    Hi all! I just bought a dozen duck eggs from a local farmer and there were a few abnormalities (oblong/flat-shelled, pimpled, etc)... but I saw this one that appears to be either cracked or mended, or fertile. I can’t tell if these lines are veins or just thinner cracks than the main one up...

    Curious what is wrong with this egg :)

    My 1 year old Easter Egger laid her first egg after the winter but it came out a little funny. I think it’s just a strange dud egg but does anybody know what this actually is? I’m not worried but just really curious on what happened. But if there is something I should worry about please tell me...

    Hot Pink Spots on Eggs

    Hey everyone! Our Buff Orpington has been laying eggs consistently with this random hot pink spot on them. Any thoughts as to what’s causing this?! It doesn’t wash off, it’s been on her eggs consistently since she started laying a few months ago. Thanks for your help!

    Is this a lash egg?

    I found this today in the run. None of our chickens have laid eggs yet. They’re about 4.5 months old. It was very dry but not exactly brittle - I couldn’t just break it apart with my hands, I had to cut it with a knife to see inside. The stick part wasn’t a part of it, just stuck on there from...

    Squishy Egg that has cracks but doesn't break. What's going on?

    My silkie hen just started laying but her first eggs have been squishy. When I press down on them they don't break open but crack everywhere and are very pliable and easy to morph into any shape. Does anyone know what's going on?

    Strange egg

    One of our hens was sick and didn’t lay for about a week. This egg was in the nesting box (our eggs are fertilized). The shell was very thin and broken and this was inside. I don’t know if it was from the sick hen or a new layer that shares the same coop because it was so small and a lighter...

    Rubber (shell-less) egg?

    I have 12 hens that were born in April and have been laying 8 to 10 eggs every day since September. I found an egg this morning that didn’t have a shell and was laid up on the roosting board instead of in the nesting boxes. I freely offer oyster shells for calcium in addition to their...

    My sapphire gem pullet is just shy of 7 months old and has been laying for about a month. I have two questions: 1) Her eggs have been spotted the entire time. I was reading on this website that spots are a sign of a health problem. Do any other sapphire gem owners have spotted eggs? Or are...

    Bumpy/Weird Eggs & Poop below Vent

    Not sure what breed this girl is, but she’s almost 7 months old & we’ve raised her from a chick since we got her at the local farm store. When she began laying eggs in August, they were normal, hard shelled, and regular appearance. They started out smaller & gradually grew larger, as expected...

    Soft egg that gets stuck?

    Hey guys, This is my first post and I have a question/concern with one of my hens. She has had an issue of laying a soft egg that doesn't fully come out twice now. Meaning the soft shell(which is squishy, you can move/mold it without it cracking) gets stuck and hangs out of her vent? Has...
