    One of my chickens is laying rumpled looking eggs. Why? Is she deficient in something?
    They all are free range and roost in a tree at night. They also have egg laying feed avalable 24/7.

    Sounds like they might need Oyster Shell.

    I think Shaun is right - mine were laying crumpled eggs too. Once I increased their oyster shell, the crumpling stopped.
