    * Does that indicate anything about her health to anybody?? Since she's only my second chicken, I don't know how usual or unusual pointy eggs are. I broke it to check for fertilization. Seemed not. Nice orange yolk with 2 pinhead-size white spots is all.

    The first few eggs they lay can be rather odd shaped. After awhile they'll lay larger and more normal eggs.

    * Guess it's not a serious worry then. Just an oddity.
