    The shell is hard, but I will definitely investigate further once I crack the egg.

    Yes see some with bumps now and then and nothing you should worry about. More common in young hens and older hens than in girls their prime in our experience.

    We are not used to "natural" eggs since "Commercial" chickens are bred to all lay a consistent size and shape right down to the color of the yolk and white inside the egg. Our chickens are natural in the sense that they can lay an amazing array of shapes and colors.

    Our chickens are the best and hippiest. Won't be surprised to see tie died eggs coming out of there soon. [​IMG]
