    My White Rock hen, Ms Prissy approximately 6 months old, from my first babies Born March 25th Layed the strangest egg today.
    What's going on ? did it get stuck in the oviduct? is she getting too much calcium? not enough something..what?????? I'm very worried about her, its also a huge egg never got 1 this size from her before. most likely looks to be a double yoker. I gave them a bunch of cooked egg shells a few days ago, after making a dozen into egg salad, would that have caused this? They woofed em down in a very short time, and usually don't eat much of the oyster shell, they are getting my own mix, of a scoop of chick food, have 17 week olds with them now who are starting to lay , a meat bird feed 1 scoop, layer 2 scoops, and there corn/wild bird 1 scoop. They also get treats of kale/cabbage/ swiss chard/ tomatoes, ect what ever scraps I have from the kitchen like tonight it was some spaghetti noodles. Experts Help !!!!!!! I don't want her to get plugged up, can I do anything to stop it from happening? TY Kim

    Looks like just one of those strange pullet eggs that you get when they first start laying. I got a water balloon from one of mine today after she had been laying perfect eggs for a couple of weeks. I'm sure the next ones will be better.
