    My girl Nugget has been laying eggs that are not the usual shape - they are kind of irregular and both ends look the same, that is, one isn't pointy. I looked at a site that someone else posted here and it said this can be caused by stress or disease. She has been acting funny, like maybe she injured herself. But getting better - she's almost normal compared to how she was a couple days ago (when she was having motor-skill issues).

    Is it ok to eat an egg like this? If she is sick, could that make us sick too?
