    Weird stuff on my egg

    While collecting eggs, I found this egg that has a weird abundance of bug egg(?) looking stuff on it. The egg was rotten anyways so I didn’t mind throwing it away but it was pretty gross. Just out of curiosity, anyone know what it is? Image below (it’s kinda nasty)

    What is going on with this egg?

    I got a shock when I cracked it open.. Has it just gone bad? Why is it so red? It doesn't smell bad btw Edit: I just realized that it's most likely a half developed chick 🤦🏻‍♀️

    Whats wrong with this egg?

    Hi everyone. I'm excited to have joined the group. Could anyone please help me to identify what is in this chicken egg that I cracked this morning? Is it excess chalaza? It didn't smell and felt stretchy. Thank you in advance for all your help.

    Egg without bloom?

    Oddball egg shaped quandary lol

    So I’ve had some odd shapes, footballs and duck farts. Caulky ones, crusty ones and soft shelled ones. But I’ve only had a few of these with the Dairy Queen top. I’m not overly concerned however I lost my lovely Cayuga who did develop a reproductive problem. I’m somewhat familiar with their...

Yesterday she laid an egg with a thin shell and blood inside not just a speck but streaks throughout...

    I can’t figure out what’s going on with one of my hens! Someone has been laying these strange misshapen eggs for the last week. Anyone have any ideas what might be causing this? Side note: I also found what looked like an egg white inside a different nesting box — no shell and no yolk. I...

    What’s with this egg?

    One of my ee chickens keeps laying this type of blue banded egg. I noticed today there’s black raised spots all over it. Is this considered pimpling? I feed them 7 way, all flock pellets, and oyster shell daily. Is this potentially a health issue?
