    Found this today. It sounded hollow and was very hard and misshaped. We might have an egg bound hen. Wonder if it is hers? Cracked it open it seemed normal.

    Eggs like that are common in older hens. I have 4 (2 yr old) RIR who lay eggs like that every once in a while. Nothing to be worried about.

    Well all of my hens but my light Brahma and Ameraucana is under a year old. Very weird.
