    Are they just starting to lay? My new layers (non frizzle) have been laying eggs a similar shape to that. I'd just assumed as they got older and bodies got used to laying they would start looking more like regular eggs.

    Oh and my frizzle eggs look normal.

    Im unsure of when they started laying as ive just taken them on,there said to be a year old. They have just gone through molting stage.
    The eggs are fine to eat,just odd shaped.
    Thanks for the reply.
