    Daily I have been getting these strange eggs that are rough, sorta like sandpaper. I have a feeling it is my Partridge Plymouth. I have seen all my other hens lay their eggs, so I figure it must be her. The yolks are beautiful, so culling her would be a waste, not to forget I got her as a pet; the eggs are just a benefit.


    You can't really see to well what it looks like... But here is an idea:

    This is a normal variation. One of my hens occasionally lays eggs with clots of granuals on the shells. You can rub them off. I wouldn't worry about this. It's not hurting the hen or the egg.
