This came from one of my mom's hens, anyone have any idea what's wrong?

Also she said it had a little funky smell to it and there were two of them so far. They've been in the house for a month maybe.

How long were the eggs outside before a month in the house? Have they been refrigerated? It looks rotten to me.

I gather the eggs every day -and have never had a problem before with them freezing. I don't wash them so I thot they would be okay not refrigerated for some time. But if it got frozen I can see where that would make it rot...?? :(

Could it have been missed when gathering?
Was it refrigerated? 


No she doesn't think she could've missed it but maybe? And no she doesn't refrigerate her eggs, neither do I...are we supposed to?

I don't refrigerate or wash mine, unless they're filthy and I washed them then I refrigerate.
But mine are eaten or sold before 2 weeks is up.

Rotten egg was probably just a fluke


Okay thank you! What a weird deal though! And frustrating, can't afford to lose eggs this time of year :/
