    Both were normal size eggs but the second was just the interior membrane of an egg. No shell. And then she ate it. [​IMG]

    Why do they lay eggs with no shell? This is a pullet and her 11th egg.

    Sometimes new layers get a glitch in their plumbing. I would not worry about it unless it keeps happening.
