    I have a Bantam hen who is laying cracked eggs. The eggs look like they cracked inside of her while the shell was being made and then repaired the crack. I don’t think this is a good thing, why is this happening?

    Will post pictures soon

    I can’t post links, but if you Google “Common EggQualityProblems” there is a good BYC article that explains many of these abnormal eggs. You can also enter that prhase into the search forums head at the top of this page.
