    Hi - well the title says it all. Should we be worried about her? She's only a year old, and a this is an every-day occurrence now. She seems fine. A few of these eggs had some floating stuff, a bit stringy and we were afraid to eat those.

    They have been getting oyster shell for a few weeks now. All 7 are healthy, happy, can free range a bit.

    I would appreciate your ideas and/or expertise.

    In particular, when do we worry, is this permanent?

    I have the same problem with one of my chickens that's about the same age! I hope you get an answer.

    It's perfectly fine. It comes and goes.
