    I have three chickens and get two to tree eggs a day. Recently one of the egglayer's eggs are sticky. I know that they produce a bloom, but is this okay?

    I wouldn't worry about it if the shells are fully formed, not rubbery. We have a few whose bloom takes a little longer to dry than eggs from others.
