So I went out to check on the kids in the run this morning and found an egg on the ground. None of them have laid on the ground since a week after they started laying so strange to begin with. After retrieving the egg, I noticed that it was a strange color. It had to come from my RIR, Lucy. I have 2 Andalusians that lay pure white eggs, and my sex linked golden (Ethel) laid an egg last night around 7:30). So it had to be Lucy. Which is very strange because she is such a devoted nest builder. She doesn't lay in the actual nesting box but will carefully build a nest in the coop and lay a beautiful dark brown egg in it. So this egg looks sort of pale brownish purple. Had a little poo on it so I washed it to put in the fridge right away. As I put water on the egg it turned back to the normal "Lucy" color. Then when it dries, it goes back. Has anyone else had a magical mysterious color changing egg before. Is this a symptom of some actual problem with Lucy that I need to correct or is it one of the just strange things that chickens do every once in a while. I'm just really concerned that there might be something wrong with Lucy. I'm going to try to include a couple of pictures of the egg. The egg on the left is a normal "Lucy" egg, the one on the right is the strange color This is what happens when the strange egg is wet. Any Thoughts?
