    On the big end the shell seems thin and on the small end there's too much shell. Looks like someone screwed up in the wrapping department.

    Becky -

    That sure is odd looking!

    How old is the hen who laid this egg? I'm also dealing with odd eggshells over here with one of my girls who is almost 2.5 years old.

    I'm not sure. I think it was one of my older hens, but I don't know how old she is. She was already laying big eggs when we got her in late April, so I'm thinking she's between 1-2.

    I've never had another like that, though.

    some crazy looking eggs on that browneggblueegg website.
    Also an interesting article on how to deal with aggressive roosters.
