    Noticed on one of my new layers (White Leghorn) she has laid a couple eggs with wavy/wrinked shells.. others are fine. Causes? Diet? Also I noticed in breaking open a few of my eggs (all from new layers) some of them have a brown speck (not bright red blood spot) in the contents usually on the yolk area. It is flat and easily removed. What causes this. My chickens are on a diet of layer pellets and scratch grains with a few b.o.s.s thrown in once ina while.

    All is ok, normal. Like my mom used to say "if that was coming out of you, don't you think it would have wrinkles too!?!" Each hen has their own "finger print" on their eggs, eventually it will pass as they will be more relaxed. The brownish spot is nothing other then a spot, a lot of eggs have them. It is a tiny peice of tissue that came with the egg in the reproductive tract, it will not be noticed when you cook it although you could pick it out.
