Every so often, my girls lay a wrinkled looking egg. Is this normal?
please post a pic
I'm computer challenged, I uploaded, but don't know how to put pic on a post?

There are some other threads on here where folks talk about the wrinkled egg they get...I would suggest to definitely do a BYC search for wrinkled egg.
But here is a thread that you should know about. I have NO idea if that would be your situation or not:
Wow, scary link, I had no idea that it could be IB. I get a wrinkled one very ocassionally from one hen, but I think it has more to do with being soft-shelled, as they are definitely softer than a normal egg.
I get wrinkled eggs sometimes and my hens are fine and so are the eggs
I have a BO who lays slightly wrinkly eggs. Nothing like the one in the linked post - yikes!
I have gotten an occasional wrinkled egg......seems more that it is a soft shell egg and hardens wrinked after it sits a while. I've seen it twice with my guineas and once with my ducks.
I have just found a wrinkled egg very much like the one pictured on the lik but there are no other symptoms of IB. I think they are moulting and its hot too. I have been giving them cat food recently to help them with the moult. Could it also be a lack of minerals needed to form the shell?
