    She has been incredibly healthy this whole time so I never really paid much attention to her often misshappen eggs. No eye/nose discharge, normal poop, normal eating/drinking. She used to, if not still does lay double yolks, along with broken and mended/body checked eggs, wrinkled/corrigated eggs along with a varring degree of shell thickness. Her first few lays were not like this but have since this laying season. She is a highly anxious bird so maybe that is possible? My other guess is possible over calcification but I'm really not sure about that? I suppose I should take her to the vet just to rule out IB?

    Another chicken had recently laid a white speckled egg instead of a brown speckle, that is my guess for the over calcification?

    The first eggs would make me think bronchitis.

    The second looks more like a pigment issue which happens.

    I forgot to mention the wrinkled egg layer is only 1 year old.
