    Sometimes our eggs have a funky smell. It's not a 'rotten' smell, so much as an 'organic' or sulfur-like smell, like maybe they were lying in poop (they weren't, to my knowledge).

    Most of our eggs have no smell. Sometimes a group of eggs will have it, so I don't think it's hen-specific. Any ideas? They're on non-GMO hen laying mix. Thank you for any insight! I hate throwing out eggs that aren't spoiled, just because they have a little smell.

    Thank you!

    I may use some anti-bacterial essential oils, rather than antibiotics, and see how they do. I appreciate your reply!
