    My RIR first 2 eggs have a whole in the them. not threw the membrane, just a whole in the top. I know i have to wait a few more days to see if this is a problem. Has anyone had this happen?

    Oh and the shell is nice and thick. I have about 1 1/2 inches of pine shavings in each nest box. All other eggs are ok.

    Maybe your pesky pullet didn't understand the concept of lay egg let human take it yet. She might have stuck her toe nail though it or pecked it.
