    I have one leghorn who had some early egg laying issues. Her egg would often have yolk smeared on it. She sometimes laid a rubber egg, and I once watched her lay JUST a yolk. She has finally gotten the conveyor belt oiled up, and is laying normally.

    IMO, you have a chook who just laid an abnormal egg, and unless one of them is acting abnormally, all should be fine. How old is your flock?
