    Any chicken can potentially pop out an odd shaped egg. I've had some very long eggs, and some that were almost as round as a golf ball. Sometimes they even had lumpy ridges in them (not soft-shelled, just lumpy). And a coupe days ago, I had a HUGE double-yolker pop out.

    It would help to know what breeds or mixes of breeds you have.
    I have LF brahmas. Several of my hens lay pinkish eggs and from one hen I regularly get eggs shaped like that. We call them pullet bullets. [​IMG]

    Everybody here is right, you have nothing to worry about. Every hen lays a strange egg from time to time. It's perfectly normal.

    I have one girl who always lays that shape- sometimes I really can't tell which side to face up to incubate until the air cell develops!!

    wait until you get a reallllly weird shaped egg! I have one that makes amoebas.
