    Weird egg?

    Today I got an egg I have never seen before. Some of my hens are molting and I believe this must have been laid by one who just came out of molt. If anyone could tell me what the problem might be, I would greatly appreciate it!

    Odd deposits on egg- parasite?

    Does anyone know what these deposits are on my Blue Copper Marran egg? Just started today and they scratch off like little eggs. At first I thought they were calcium deposits...but they scratch off easily. None on the eggs of the other chickens in the same box. Any ideas??

    Drop in Egg Production due to Rooster loss?

    I have recently re-homed the rooster of my 7 hen flock. He had been an all around miserable jerk to both my family and the hens. Offenses include attacking my mother and little sister on sight, relentlessly chasing hens to mount them, and stripping the backs and heads of almost all of the girls...
