    Found this egg this morn in the yard One of my girls must have laid it last night before going in the house and we missed it.

    Is this normal to look like this? I[​IMG]

    It looks all "vieny" and rough. It does feel pretty smooth other then the bumps which look to me like protruding Viens.


    I have had some
    Wierd looking eggs before (rough on top, flat sides, double yolkers, "ribbon" around the middle. But nothing like this one

    Just a "normal" abnormal egg. They happen sometimes, especially if your girls are still young. Nothing to be concerned about unless it starts happening very frequently.
