    I found an egg with what can only be described as an umbilicus sticking out of one end! [​IMG] What IS this and did it hurt the hen???? [​IMG]

    Sometimes things misfire. Is she acting like she's hurt? If not, don't sweat it, every now and then they just have a fluke freak egg.

    The egg layer is a mystery. WHo knows. No one is acting any stranger than they normally do!

    I've never seen anything like this freak show.... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I found a duck egg once with a tail. It was a tube of shell filled with white, about the size of my pinky finger.​
