    I have a hen just a little over a year old. In the last couple weeks she has been laying deformed eggs. Before her eggs were great. The shell is hard, but deformed, and some times cracked. Looks like the cracks are from the inside. We give them oyster shells also.
    [Heres what they look like. Any and all ideas welcome.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]img]https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/28023_egg.jpg[/img]
    Thank You 4est

    I wish that I could help you as to why that happens but I can't. I also have chickens that lay those same eggs. I have no idea why that happens. [​IMG]

    It's pretty common and most likely she'll go back to laying normal looking eggs here shortly. I can't tell you why it happens, just a glitch in their system or something, but it happens quite a bit and then goes away as mysteriously as it arrived.
