    So my hens have been laying for a few months. Nice eggs. But this morning I got one that had like a bulging ring all the way around it. I wanted to check and be sure that didn't mean anything was wrong??

    As long as its not a regular occurrence, there is nothing wrong. You get all sorts of strange eggs when they start laying. Sometimes a double yolker will come out like that, or if the hen is stressed while laying.

    Ok thank you! I'm new and freak out easy. Lol Plus someone's poo has been really weird, so I'm trying to research that too. Last night one went on the patio, & it was like water, with chunks of what appeared to be grass in it, but otherwise totally clear. Then one has been going and its very runny, almost orange. Idk if its from all the tomatoes and watermelon they've been munching on or what. [​IMG]
