    What is wrong with my chicken? She has laid these two funky eggs within 6 days of each other.

    those are from different hens, the green one has a thin/shell that broke, and the white one has a thinner shell that broke and I don't quite know what is stuck to it.

    How old is she? It could be just from old age. It could also be from lack of calcium. What does she eat on a daily basis?

    My hens have been laying since last summer. I do not have any white egg layers. 9 brown and one blue. They are both from the same hen.

    She will be a year old in May. I feed layer crumble and also provide oyster shell, fresh fruits and vegetables too.

    The diet isn't causing a problem her age isn't really the issue, I'd say that she has trouble with her shell gland, are the insides ok, good yolk and good albumen.

    We opened the egg today on the blue plate and it looked normal. The first one 6 days ago was found in the nesting box sitting in what seemed like the egg whites.

    Actually both eggs were sitting in the pool of whites. This just started. She has laid normal eggs up until now.
