    Hi, I just went out to check the coop and there was another egg, still warm so probably layed between noon and 12:15 or so. This is from one of our EE pullets and it is misshappen and 'wrinkled'. I will add a photo, but not sure if will show everything.

    Is this egg good??

    OH, that is just fine to eat. You'll probably see more strange eggs....It's all normal for a newly laying hen. [​IMG]

    Yes! It is fine to eat. I've had some too... the shell just doesn't form correctly.

    I think it's caused from excess calcium deposits, and should be just fine.
