    this? [​IMG]

    I apologize for the bad pic. It is freckle all over even with a few darker brown, like birthmark spots, on it. I have six chickens, five which have been laying for months. Two are EE, so not them, two are RIR, which lay smooth, med brown eggs, one BSL which lays a round fat brown egg one BSL that has never laid. Could my 35 week old barren chicken be barren no more or did one of my others just lay a funky egg? What I think is odd, is that my one BSL who has never laid has black ear lobes instead of brown. I guess I thought they should be brown like her sister. Hmmmmmm.........

    Thank you for your reply. Gosh I wish is would be from my other BSL. I have seen her eat oyster shell and she will even go sit in the nest box, but usually when someone else is laying. I guess I can only wait and see.[​IMG]

    It's just extra calcium deposits on the shell. It's fairly common for any breed.
