I posted yesterday about our flock stopping laying after adding 3 new hens, one of which is sick looking, 6 weeks ago. We started giving them electrolytes and today started an antibiotic, but we just got this egg. It is very skinny and had no yolk. Any ideas?

Excuse my daughter, who is crying because she couldn't hold the egg.

Odd shaped eggs can be a result of:

- Immature shell gland (young layers);

- Defective shell glands;

- Disease such as infectious bronchitis;

- Stress, frights, or disturbances;

- Overcrowding in coop and/or run.

The first egg looks like a torpedo, don't no the cause.
The last is definitely alien. ( CONTACT ROSWELL New Mexico ).
Just kidding. I've never seen anything like them. GC
