Unusual defect or fairly common? I googled and don't see much about it.
This would be very uncommon. How old is the chicken in question? The reason I ask is that often times people with newly hatched chicks confuse the umbilical area as a second vent.
Thank you!! She just hit a year. There's no questioning this. I'm embarrassed to say I've just noticed it. I have a minor lice issue w 2 birds (she's one of the two) so I've been in their business a few times this week and while I check them regularly this one is slightly off to the side of the "main?" one and was under feathers. I'm alternating dawn baths and poultry dust and I saw it when her feathers were wet.
I'm trying to find out if this would cause any issues down the road.
Can you photograph the area so we can see it?
She just got dusted sorry, I wish I took the picture when she was fresh out of the tub.
Update!!! She has now laid 2 robins egg sized eggs that do not contain a yolk. She lays normal sized eggs on other days. It's pretty interesting. .
Whoa. That's really cool! Do you know which vent she lays out of?

I thought you were crazy until you posted that pic. Sorry!
I am probably crazy (my husband says I am w all my chicken talk) but there is no question this bird has 2 vents. Lol. I think the normal eggs are coming from the left and the minis are coming from the right. It's completely bizarre.
The yolk less egg was weird. It was smaller than a bantam egg.
