Hi, I need help, my chicken layed an egg that is bouncy. Here are some videos:
Is this her first? If so she will work it out. I cant see the vids, just black
This is not her first egg, She has been laying since July 14, 2012
It's a "rubber egg". They're common with newer layers. See if she lays her next one normally. That is usually what happens. If not then revisit what she is eating. Layer formulated food? Added calcium may also be needed in her diet. ie Oyster shells, or feeding back egg shells.
I am pretty new to all of this compared to most here but since I commute via public transportation, I read a LOT!\
With that said...I would say your bird needs calcium. Pick up some oyster shell and either mix it with the food, or put it on the side somewhere. I have a cinder block in my run where the water sits. I put a sprinkle of oyster shell on it and "they" say that the chicken just takes it when they need it. I don't get that but somehow the chicken knows. Mine touch it randomly but not when i'm watching...lol
Someone else may have some more insight but this is based on what i have read.
What is the breed of the hen?
Rubber chickens lay rubber eggs, every body knows that.
