    My Ancona just started laying. This is her 3rd egg... I know they can come out wobbly and with ridges. Same deal with one that's engraved? It goes all the way around, straight line/circle.

    They are free range. Organic feed, no GMO or soy. Oyster shell is in feed as well as offered free choice... Just want to make sure she's on the right path :)

    Thanks!

    That's actually pretty neat. I doubt that there are any problems with her reproductive tract. When they first start laying it can take a while to iron out all the kinks - pun intended. [​IMG]
