    Any ideas on why I would find eggs like these? They came from a game hen who has been laying for about 2 months with no weird stuff until now! Thanks!

    Do you give them oyster shell? Looks like they need a good shot of calcium!

    They get shell and calcium fortified feed.

    Is that cedar bedding?

    Looks like maybe she's getting the kinks worked out. Is she a new layer? There was someone here who had something similar. MAybe I can find the link for you.

    It is not recommended you use cedar bedding, just FYI. Pine is better.

    The coop was really a mess and I was already cleaning it out. Tractor Supply was out of bedding, had to go to a pet store and it was all they had. We normally have pine.

    I have a feeling the bedding is just used for the nestbox area.

    I've used it for years with no problems...helps to keep the flea population down as well and makes the coop smell SO much nicer!

    Looks like a little glitch in her system! Hopefully she'll return to normal. Kind of looks like 2 follicles separated from the ovary at close intervals and caused the repro tract to move in fast-forward since it "thought" another egg was on it's way.

    Coolness! At least you can document it with pictures!
