In the Brooder
- Nov 30, 2013
I have nine Australorps that just turned twenty weeks old. I found our first egg this weekend. It was a beautifully shaped egg, a little on the small side, but still nice size. The weird thing was that the egg was not in a nest box. It was on the floor of the coop and it was covered in yolk. The egg was intact though. There was also a lot of yolk in one of the nest boxes closest to where the egg was. Any ideas about why the egg was covered in yolk. There were no other signs of broken shell or anything like that, just yolk.
