    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I am not 100% sure on the breed of chicken you have there. You can post pictures in our What Breed and Gender section for more help from the egg-sperts there... https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

    As for the egg she just laid, rough eggs can stem from dehydration, lack of proper nutrients, ailments such as bacterial or viral infections, internal worms can effect the egg shell quality. Here is an article that might help you out... https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/common-egg-quality-problems

    However, hens will occasionally lay a funky egg. As long as it does not become a habit, it isn't much to worry about.

    Make yourself at home here and we do welcome you to our flock! :)
