    The blue oblong egg is out of my ?Chinese? Hen and the golf ball sized & shape is out of a RIR! Should I be concerned?

    Young hens tend to lay these odd, big, double yolked eggs (or small, soft and without yolk!)
    It usually settles down with maturity,

    The colored egg is from a Easter Egger hen. Odd shaped eggs and/or small are common with new layers. [​IMG]

    The eggs are that big. The brown egg came from a chick that's been laying for a while but here lately her eggs are getting round & huge.
