    My Delaware has laid two eggs that are somewhat malformed. Anyone have a similar issue and if so, is my chicken having a problem?

    Are they 24 weeks? If so prolly just a fluke, I wouldn't worry.

    Quote:The Delaware is about 31 weeks young. The Delaware is also producing fairly discolored (splotchy) eggs. These eggs issues began after changing to a nipple waterer, so I am thinking that there is some relationship.

    Ok. Now I have a miniature egg.

    Anyone ever get a miniature egg? From the color, it seems as though it came from my Ameracauna.

    Tiny eggs are usually laid by pullets who are just at POL. They often lay a couple of minis before their egg factories work out all the glitches. No worries!
