YES another egg within an egg...Could there be a problem????
I posted her other one on... an egg within an egg SCARY the end of Feb.


It was so big and round..and had a soft shell


There was no yoke this time


Lucy the EE was walking like she had ridden a horse for days. Her hinnie had pieces of a soft egg delivery.
I brought her in to wash her up and felt such a bulge. So I put her into the coop alone inside a nest. She ended up laying it within 15 mins. and it was on the soft floor.As soon as I opened the coop door she was OUT. with such a relieved look on her face.

Please help me figure this out, is there anything I can do to stop this
Chickens will lay anomalies like yours every once in awhile. Pullets will especially, since they're still getting their systems aligned for laying. You name it, I've gotten them-fart eggs, soft shell, no shell, double yolkers, egg in an egg, etc. Don't worry; it's normal and there's nothing you can do to prevent them.
Thank so much, She been laying since Aug. 09 and took a 3 month lay off for winter. She just started up again about a month ago.
I'm so glad it's something that will work it self out. I was pretty scared at the bulge in her bottom.
