    I have an ameraucana that has had an odd-shaped egg, twice in the last few days. It's normal at the bottom (the big end) but at the top, it's smaller. Picture lava in a lava lamp trying to separate.

    Is this a new layer? When pullets begin laying you will find all kinds of weird shapes, textures, sizes. Can you post pics?

    I'll try to get a pic, but she's been laying for about 5 months.

    we have a white chicken (sorry don't know the breed) that was laying nice white eggs from the time we adopted her until she stopped 10/15 due to molting..... well today she finally laid one but it was very long and narrow so long it wouldn't even fit in the egg carton
