Guess I never thought of that! It just kinda worried me cuz of the way the rim of the hole was rolled out...I immediately thought something crawled out lol

It appears to me to be a failure to completely encase the egg with calcium while passing through the egg glad. How old is the hen who laid it? I see this with older hens and especially at the end of a yearly egg cycle just before molt.

I believe the calcium "roll" around the edge of the hole points to this rather than a beak or toe poke.

She's 2.5-3 years old...maybe older. She's a old bag but I love her to bits
