    It looks like a shell-less egg. If you have new layers in the flock it is pretty common. I wouldn't worry about it unless you start seeing them on a regular basis -- of that happens consider adding some additional calcium.

    Thing can be a little funky in the beginning. Smaller eggs, eggs with no shell, eggs with weird looking shells, eggs in the middle of the yard. Sometimes their bodies take a few tries to get it just right.

    okay. yeah I've noticed that so far. more eggs on the ground than in the boxes and I can tell they have been in the boxes cuz they mess up the nesting material
