    Normal egg on the left, what I found in my nest box today on the right. No yolk, shell was easily three times thicker than normal. I can't explain this. What's weird is that the hen that I'm pretty sure laid this is usually my "Jumbo Layer" with eggs so big they don't fit in an egg box.

    It's a fart egg!! They will lay them every once in a while!! Most the times in new layers but older layers can lay them too!!
