    I have a batch of buff orps about 6 months old give or take. I found my first egg today but it is weird. Two eggs in one attached together end to end with paper thin shell. Anyone else ever see this?

    Siamese twin eggs? Wow. lol I've not heard of that either. With a paper thin shell, I wonder if they would even produce chicks?

    Sorry, no pic. The dog got them for a snack. The outer layer was more like gummy bears than paper really. Very freaky like the outer membrane was in place but no shell. I suppose this is just a fluke since she is just getting started.

    Ok, here is the one we had, was yours anything like this one? This is something that one of our OEGB pullets made.
    And please don't judge us on the cedar shavings in the pics as these are pics from a few years ago when we didn't know any better. [​IMG]

    Quote:Yeah everything was normal after that. They were OEGB but I think it can happen to just about any young pullet that is new to laying. Neat to find though!
