    One of my hens (Henny I think) laid her first egg today! This is my second hen to lay an egg as I am new to keeping chickens.
    I am just wondering if the egg is ok as it has some markings on it..... almost looks like it got stuck partly out for a while! Is this ok or do I need to change something I am feeding them or doing? [​IMG]

    Henny's first egg is the one on the right. Gertie's is the one on the left (been laying for 2 months). [​IMG]

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    She's fine. Weird stuff happens when they first begin to lay; jelly eggs, wrinkle eggs, double yolks, fart eggs, all kind of weird stuff. don't worry, she'll get it sorted out.
