    Hi all, my names Kelsey and I’m from New Zealand. I currently have three brown shavers who are awesome layers. Today upon using one of the eggs I noticed it seemed to look like it was fertilised.. I do not have a rooster and it’s not possible one got to my shavers. (They’re locked up 24/7)
    I have hopefully attached a photo of the yolk.
    What are your thoughts??
    :)
