    Hi all i had trouble downloading my pictures i hope you can see the marks clearly. When my hen lays on the coop floor the eggs have like a water mark on them, any clues as to what it is? thank you :)

    It looks like a little excess calcium to me, and its normal :)
    I get eggs that look like this, sometimes they even have bumps (looks like warts).

    The transition in color is similar to what I often see on our eggs. I think it evens out with exposure to light. We ignore it.
