It's just a strange way the calcium & color is deposited on the egg. Interestingly, some breeds' eggs deposit color on the top layer of the shell and some bear eggs where the color is all the way through. I have a few like that too although they only come out round once in a while. I have five different breeds and they all lay a very different type of egg. Here's to individuality!
From what I remember, blue egg color is laid down at the beginning of the egg cycle and brown egg color is at the end, so her cycle is some what off, also is the swirl bumpy, could be extra calcium. If her shell is strong, I would not worry about it, it is just an odd color for now.I'm not sure what could be causing it but you have some cool eggs!
Always those long, skinny eggs? I've found those here and there- not sure who layed them, but I figured it was just an occasional fluke- or better known as a bad egg.
Same hen. I only have 8, so I know who lays what. As @aart says, fine for eating. I have no plans to hatch any.Always those long, skinny eggs? I've found those here and there- not sure who layed them, but I figured it was just an occasional fluke- or better known as a bad egg.
I think she really means itI do, I got her as a hatching egg from a local backyard hen enthusiast. She hatched out of a very dark brown egg, so I’m assuming she’s half marans. The father options were, death layer, olive egger, or ayam cemani. After seeing her eggs and her markings I believe she’s a marans ayam cemani mix! Here’s a screenshot from a video I took of her today View attachment 2492423
One of my Barred Rocks has started laying and egg just like the top one. When she was laying before her molt she laid a normal looking egg.
