    It happens. They internally knit two eggs together. I hate when this happens, but there's little you can do about it. Mostly it is the very young pullets that do this. Hopefully, it passes soon.

    LOL!!!! My Miss. Jenny Penny our Red sex-link lays at least one every week! It is scary how BIG they can be! I give extra treats on those days and wash their bums with cool water....they get dirty after they start laying, poo can get built up right under on their little feathers and will pull, they like to get their bums cleaned......spoiled chickens! Lol
