    Why is my chicken laying eggs that are scrambled when laid...I crack open the shell and the yolk is not whole...it happens with one certain chicken...the rest are whole yolks with white...what is wrong with this chicken????

    How long has it been laying? Some chickens take awhile to start laying normal eggs because they are getting the cycle down.

    Not too sure...not sure if it is one of my older layers, or one of my younger ones that just started...I have only had chickens for a little over a year (first batch)...I hatched some out in my incubator..(younger ones) all mutts lol! I think it might be the one who sometimes lays double yokes, same shape and color, I have all different colors and shapes, really funny! but the egg doesn't have an odor and when u cook it, it is already scrambled when u crack it open...NEVER seen this, not even growing up, parents had chickens!
