    Well if she is a new layer, then yes that happens. But if she is an older one, could be an issue maybe. I have only had chickens since May. Mine have laid some weird eggs.

    Then don't worry. [​IMG] It takes a few weeks for their bodies to get into good production.

    I only had one of mine do that once. I have 6 layers and 3 pullets and 2 eggs due to hatch next weekend under a broody(at 6.5 months old)
