My 11-month-old Barnie pullet, Java, took a long time to start laying. Then, when she got going, she consistently laid extra large eggs that were very round, barely oblong. This morning I found one of her eggs under the roost. Initially, I thought it was broken because I could see yolk and albumen and a membrane. But, when I picked it up I realized that she had formed another membrane around the egg. I know that sometimes they will form another shell around an egg already in the "uterus" but am wondering why this happens. Luckily, she didn't form another shell, but it seems like the first egg must have been stuck, and the next egg in the works lubricated things up enough for it to slide out. Has anyone had this happen? And, did you find that bird started getting egg bound? I will be really bummed out if she does get egg bound because she is my most beautiful Barnevelder. Thanks for any thoughts you might have. eta - the egg weighs 69g, so solidly XL but not jumbo. still, that really round shape.
