    Quote:I have a hen that pops one of those out occasionally, not all the time. I don't sell them to my egg customers, but I do eat them. I just don't store them for long periods, but try to use them up pretty quickly.

    X2. Any goofy, but still good egg, is not sold, but eaten.

    I'm glad you asked this. My EE pretty much always lays eggs like this, sometimes worse than others, but always rough. She also now has a prolapsed vent. Not sure if that has anything to do with it, though.
