    I have had chickens for a few years now ( mixed flock) . I get eggs every day. I purchased some chicks to add to the flock last year. They are BCM hens. They have been laying about an egg a day for the past two months and are aprox 8 months old. About 2 weeks ago one of the BCM hens laid and egg with no shell or membrane - just yolk/egg white. She stopped laying eggs for about 2 weeks after this & then started laying again yesterday.
    Anyone else ever have this happen?

    Thanks for the reply. All is well in the flock again. Eggs everyday from all. The BCM that layed the shell-less egg hasnt missed a day since her 2 wk vacation I had just never seen or heard of an egg being layed with no shell or membrane. I have heard of no shell but not just yolk/egg white. It was pretty strange.
