It was probably a one time occurance. She may have started the laying process, got interrupted by something and then started again. You'll see all kinds of strange things as their bodies adjust to laying.
If she's acting and eating normal I wouldn't worry.

thanks for the answers. got another one this week. this time the egg on the out side was huge. i dont know how she got it out. it was the size of my hand it had a brittle shell and when i broke it open it had like egg white and then a perfectly good normal sized egg inside. these eggs were found in the barn not the coup. anyone seen this before?
