One of my standard size white leghorn hens laid this today. Should I be worried?
I'm not seeing a picture but it sounds like it may be what is called a fart egg. This is an egg that is not a complete egg usally containing no yolk. If I'm not misstatkeing this is when a hen trys to lay two eggs in one day or 24 hour period . It happens not to worry.
I put the picture with it, but apparently. It didn't show up.
I cracked it open and it hardly had a yolk. It's smaller than the end of your thumb.
It's called a fart egg. A whoopsie in the egg factory.
In almost 4 years of having chickens, I have had 2 fart eggs.
Ok so I have no worries?
Nope, very normal, especially for newer layers.
She is a year old. They just got done molting.
