    make sure they have free choice oyster shell to eat. But, once in awhile, a very young layer will have this happen; nothing to worry about, but they certainly ARE weird!

    I had a few of those when my BR started laying. It's really gross when it's warm, you pick it up, and it breaks in your hand. [​IMG]


    It was just a fluke of her getting used to laying. Her eggs are fine now.
