    I have a Delaware hen that lays eggs with shells that have a funny consitency. Some times she lays a big honking egg. The shell is still funny but it's huge. I'd like to find out which it is and get rid of her as I don't like the consitency of the egg inside either. Does anyone know why she is like this? I was told that none of the hens which came together was ill at anytime.
