    I have a hen that laid an egg no shell, abnormal size-shape with about 2 yolks and it seemed to be hard broiled. What is going on? Can anyone shine any light on this?

    It happens sometimes. Especially if the chicken is young and is just starting to get the hang of things. Even when they are older, there is sometimes some "oops" situations where the egg development process just doesn't go right. Nothing to be scared of. However, if this happens on a continuous basis then you should check to make sure she is getting enough nutrients from food.
