    I have 18 Chickens and 2-4 of them just started laying about a week - 10 days ago. Each egg I have broken open seems to have something in it. Some have a greenish little nubbin and others have had like a little foreign floater thingy in them. ? What are they and is it normal? Also the eggs smell like fish. (a little) Is this my food?

    you might want to use the search and look up "worms in eggs"

    Not sure.

    Photos would help. Sometimes the food you feed can affect the smell and taste of eggs too. So what are you feeding?
