    Hi everybody,
    I really didn't know If my chicken was sick or not but I kept cleaning her eye and nose with saline water>boiled water and salt, and she seems fine. I think she got pecked in the eye, because my two other hens have been pecking my silkie. Is it Ok to eat the eggs? [​IMG] I don't know, and my hen with the pecked eye she laid this weird color egg. She lays brown eggs and It came out as a easter egg look. Light brown stripe in the middle and dark brown tips? Is this normal?


    Thank you

    If you are sure the hen is not sick then it is OK to eat the eggs. The easter egg colored egg is probably normal egg variation. Is the hen a new layer, sometimes the newer layer takes some time to work out all the kinks, in the egg laying apparatus.
