    I have 6 Australorps that are 5 months old. I got my first egg on July 31. I now have 2 laying almost everyday and a 3rd laying about every other. As you can see one of my 3 was a little odd today, but its the sound of it that concerns me, it sounds like ceramic. When I tap on it and compare it to tapping on another "normal" egg it has a very different sound.

    Any ideas on what might cause this or anyone else ever have this?

    Iv had eggs that look like this although when cracked the inside is normal however I never thought to tap mine so no idea what it sounded like. I dont no what causes it but Iv had a few that are odd shapes makes me think the hen struggled to get the egg out
