    My 2 year old Lace Wyandotte didn't really start up laying with the rest this spring. She is a nervous bird, would often just lay her eggs on the coop floor. Fast Then she had a dust up with a hawk where she lost a few feathers. Then she laid a fairy egg with no yolk. A couple weeks later and...

    Hole in egg

    Hello everyone!!! So the last few weeks we’ve been having broken egg issues in the nesting boxes. I figured one of our new layers was pecking and chalked it up to that. But today my son brings this egg in and said Mom I think this is the problem. We have 6 older layers. Like this will be their...

    Odd Egg...

    I have a trio of Sebastopol who are all 3-4 years old; this is my first season with them. My one girl, Anastasia, started laying about 2 weeks ago, and I got an egg from her on the 17, 19, and 24. The weather has been weird, so I think it’s throwing her off. I thought my other girl, Dolly, laid...

    Weird Shape and Texture Egg

    Hi all, so my hens laid some weirdly shaped eggs! The second one isn't too weird to me. But the first one is WEIRD. It has shirt wrinkles and the pores are a lot more noticeable. Anyone know what it means for the hen if she lays eggs like these? Or have some similarly weird eggs to share? :p:pop

    Confused

    I have this hen who I noticed pooped out some yolk. No shell just clear poop with some yellow in it. She sometimes stands still but she eats a lot and is a big girl. She will chase treats and even peck at others so there is no real signs. The first 2 times I watched her poop they were like that...

    Egg Laying Trouble

    Morning. Yesterday early morning, Autumn, my 22 month old Amercauna has experienced what I believe to be an internal broken egg. I noticed egg material (yolk & white) leaking from her vent. There was a large amount so I feel confident that it all came out. A short while later, I went back to...

    Extremely fragile eggs

    I have a Black Copper Marans hen who is now 7 1/2 months old. She is a healthy gal and has always been real positive and stress-free. When she laid her first few eggs at 20 weeks, they were soft-shelled and one seemed to have no shell at all. This resolved within that first week. Now, in the...

    Soft-Shelled/Shell-less Eggs

    Hello All! I have a bantam easter egger that is a year + a few months old. She seems very healthy and isn’t picked on or bullied by anyone else in the flock. However, I notice that every once in a while (which is too common for my liking), she’ll lay a soft shelled or completely shell-less egg...

    FOUND 8 Muscovy duck eggs! 2 are turning dark need advice please.

    My favorite muscovy duck was killed by a raccoon close to my front yard. I was thinking about it, wondering why she was always hanging out by the front of my house and not by the water. I thought maybe she had a nest. Sure enough, I took a look around and found her nest. I recovered 8 eggs in...

    Odd Large Silkie Egg!

    A silkie layed this odd large egg that has a weird shell pattern, & bulge on one side. It's unevenly bumpy, but very smooth. What causes this?

    Pullet (Possibly an EE) layed a sack of blood and 2 yolks?

    I'm wondering if this is concerning... I didn't get a picture (Probably because they ate it the moment they saw it and I couldn't stop them), but just imagine a double yolker but instead of the white stuff (that I don't know the name of yet), there's blood...

    Hatching on the Underside!

This morning, got up and all the remaining eggs had pipped on the right side. Two have hatched but the one that pipped on the underside...

    Help! I don't know if my duck egg already had an internal pip

    Hi, today in the morning I saw my egg did some wiggling inside the shell. I don't know which day the egg is and I've been candling it with a cellphone flashlight hopefully not that much. I don't know if it already pip or what should I do. It's been more than 12 hours and about an hour ago I...

    Red ears, but white eggs??

    My BR just started laying, and her eggs are white. I'm just a bit shocked,I know there are a few breeds that don't follow the red ears=colored eggs, white ears=white eggs rule. However barred rocks shouldn't be in that category, right? It's pretty neat! Does anyone know how this could happen? As...

    Long bloody strand in egg

    I understand that its normal for there to be a blood spot in an egg, but I was a little concerned to find this much blood in an egg. I have no males in my flock, so it couldn't be a baby. I just want to know if this is okay and there's nothing wrong with my girl.
