    I have 12 sex-links (6 red, 6 black, not really sure the breed mix). One of my chickens has been laying eggs where the shell has been looking a little rough but nothing like this morning. The egg scared me. What's gong on?? The chicken is about 1 year and 2 months old, no noticeable ailments... IMG_0138.JPG IMG_0139.JPG

    I've bought eggs at the store like that... rarely, but they've come. Perfectly safe to eat, but like previous poster said, if it becomes regular I'd look into it.
