    A few causes are stress, a defective shell gland and some respiratory diseases like bronchitis.

    Have you only gotten one egg like this? Sometimes they lay 1 or 2 fluke eggs. I'd only worry if she keeps laying them like that constantly.

    I get eggs like that from time to time. Mine have always just been a one-off kind of thing. Nothing that you need to do or change, it's just a glitch. I'd just keep an eye out and see if anything continues.
