    Not sure if I should be concerned. This is a small malformed egg from yesterday.
    It is from a 1 year old hen (red sex link) who has been laying normal eggs until now. Have been getting a few fart eggs but not sure if they were from the same hen.

    Keep an eye on her, you may want to watch to see that she is eating her normal feed and oyster shell free choice. You may want to consider providing extra calcium to her by giving some liquid calcium or something like Caltrate (1/2tab every day) until she lays a solid egg. Don't go overboard with the calcium but extra for a short period of time may be beneficial.

    Also give her some poultry vitamins a couple of times a week.
