    hi there!!

    my chickens eggs for the past couple of says have been incredibly deformed in the sense that the outer shell is very crinkled and not the usual smooth outer layer it should be.

    is this due to stress? weather? illness?

    thanks heaps!

    Often it is a hiccup in the egg factory. If it is a continued problem then it could indicate something as a simple as nutritional deficiencies or as complicated as the exhibition of an illness/disease.

    What are you feeding the chickens?

    Im experiencing a similiar kind of problem. one of my chickens is laying an egg that has a red bloody circle around it in the middle of it. seems to me that she is maybe too small to be laying this big egg. happens every egg. it is dried by the time i find it and it wont wash off.. may not be blood but looks it to me. she is a young pullet. lesismore
