    Hello folks!

    I just found this today in one of the egg boxes. As you can see in the photo it's quite bigger than the typical egg that I placed next to it for scale. The outer "shell" is soft but you can clearly feel a hard egg inside. Any ideas? FYI, I have only four chickens that (2 Barred Rocks and 2 Black Astralops) and they are only about 6mos old and have been laying for only a month and a half. Thanks in advance for your help and/or insight!

    I have heard 1 egg within another egg. It could also be a double yolker. This is normal for hen who just start to lay. And [​IMG]
