    I have 1 hen that lays eggs that are like footballs - in shape NOT IN SIZE lol [​IMG]

    They are IMPOSSIBLE to tell which is the small end and which is the large end!

    Anybody else have this problem?

    I am not using these in the bator, because I am putting them in a turner that rotates the tray 45 degrees.

    I have one hen who lays almost round eggs, like a golf ball, and about the same size. Little Buff Orp has ever since she started laying. If I hatch any of those I just candle first to see the air cell. Then you know which end is which. Air cell is the big end of the egg.

    We get one of those occasionally. I just candle them to see what end the air-cell is on.
