    Hello I'm 10 months new at chicken raising and this morning I noticed that one of my chickens laid an egg that was a little rough and somewhat flat on one side."?" is there anything to worry about?

    You can take a look at this article from the Learning Center, it has a lot of information about egg abnormalities:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/common-egg-quality-problems

    Is this a young layer? Does she have crushed oyster shell available 24/7? What are you feeding her?

    Some of those things can make an impact of the eggs.

    I don't have any oaster shells around but will get some. My youngest layer is 6 months I'm thinking it's her. also, I just introduced scratch to my feed they have been on laying pellets and fruits and veggies. I'm certainly going to read the page you recommended thank you.

    She's very pretty- it sometimes takes time for a new layer to work the kinks out of the system.
