    So I got an egg today from one of my girls and I don't know who! I found it in the nesting box! It's white and has tiny little speckles it won't crack! I mean it feels hollow and I slammed it on the concrete! Hit with a brick and it won't crack. Anyone heard of this before from chickens starting to lay? Think it's bc they had to much calcium or is someone playing a joke on me???

    My dad did something like that to my mom once. He had a coworker that he was getting goose eggs from and putting them in the bantam nests my mom tended. She was calling half the county telling 'em bout her giant egg laying bantams...
