    This is a bit of a rant why does my andalusian hen who lays such nice big eggs always have to poo on them almost every other day there is a big wad of poo on her egg it is just frustrating and needed to let it out

    I guess poo and eggs come out through the same final opening and pushing one out can push out the other!

    Knock of the big bits, wash them if gross.....and eat them!
