    We have a White-Crested Black Polish hen that is laying eggs that smell fishy and/or rotten. We have consulted several chicken owners and one "expert" and they don't have a clue as to why this is. It isn't the food, water or housing since we have several other layers that don't have this issue. The chicken looks and acts healthy and is a consistent layer. Does anybody have any suggestions?

    I think it is something she ate. Do they free range? Can you really be sure she didn't get into something the others did not?

    Or maybe she has a nasty infection in her plumbing. But if that was it she peobably wouldn't be laying eggs at all.

    They do not free range and she has been laying everyday for a month. All stinky.
