    I've have found an occasional Jello egg here and there but this one I have never seen before. I thought I would share.

    Quote:It is highly common in new layers actually.

    OP: I would assume your girls are new layers?

    All my girls are free range so I don't know which one laid it. I'm not sure if it is something to worry about yet. I'm hoping it was just a fluke.

    Most of my hens are between 1-2 yo. So I don't know if I should be worried or not.

    Looks like that hen wanted to get all the kinks out of her egg production equipment out of the way in one shot!
