    Please excuse the dirty egg, but can you see the bulge on the left side? Every egg I've ever gotten from this hen has had this odd shape. It always bulg[​IMG]es out on one side. I'm guessing it's something about how her reproductive system works. The eggs are fine on the inside. I just find it odd!

    Maybe it's her anatomy? I've seen one or two like that but not recurring from a certain hen. I don't have much experience. But my guess would be that it's just the way her anatomy is.

    The other funny thing is it's my smallest hen, and she lays the biggest eggs! :)
