    I posted a thread a few weeks back about a bloody egg. My suspicion is that the same chicken that laid that egg, laid some other egg anomaly. I went to gather eggs this morning to find this odd thing in the nest box with other eggs. I proceeded to open up this weird thing and the inside of it looked like raw chicken meat.... I can’t even describe what it looked like so I took many pictures. F083102C-BD6F-45FA-AFB2-E5E745C5A59D.jpeg 460BB6F2-C276-46EA-9E02-BC9DEA3B885F.jpeg 34DEB84B-6E59-465C-B689-E6E264CE3D45.jpeg

    I also gathered an egg that had blood on the outside of it. I’m really not sure what is going on. All my hens seem happy and healthy. There have been quite a few broken eggs in the box as well. I there anything to do for a lash egg?

    There have been quite a few broken eggs in the boxes but the shells don’t seem that thin. I increased the oyster shells I give them. I’m honestly not sure if they’re deficient in calcium and that’s why they’re breaking or if my roo is going in and breaking them because I heard the can happen
