    the last two weeks I have gotten several odd looking eggs,instead of dark brown they are almost white,several have a flat side and several are wrinkled like they were laid wet and dried ,the shells are a pale white with almost no color,whats causing this and can I do anything to correct it,they have access to oyster shells,

    Sometimes it has to do with the age of the bird - how old is the "culprit"? Do you know?

    Have you tried going to "search" and putting in wrinkled egg ? I found several other posts on this. Many differant causes are suggested there. good luck.
