    My chickens have laid some pretty big eggs, but one of them has a line going through the top like a circle. Should I be worried? :confused:

    Do you have any pictures? Sometimes my hens lay strange eggs with marks or bumps on them but in this case I'm not sure.

    Some breeds just lay big eggs in general and it's perfectly normal but I can see where that would be concerning at first!!

    Pics of egg and more details, like how old is bird and how long has it been laying, would help enormously.
    No one can give you any viable advice based on the scant info you've given.

    Yes, I was going to put up a picture but I never found out how. If you could tell me I would appreciate it very much :)
