    Found this when I made breakfast this morning. It was a little soft shell yolkless egg in a regular egg. Came out of my Amaracuna She is about a year old and just started laying after molting.

    Welcome to BYC!

    Hopefully it's just a start up glitch.....can get funky eggs coming back into lay after a molt just like when they first start laying as pullets.

    Any chance you still have that glob?
    Cut it in half and take more pics.
    It looks like it could be a 'lash egg', which is a sign of infection.

    I cut it in half just didn't take a picture it was full of egg white. Can they lay a lash egg inside of a normal egg? I have been watching her close and she seems fine. I haven't had anymore weird eggs until last week when I had 6 eggs out of 5 hens. [​IMG] So I guess a random chicken showed up and used my coop or some one laid two in a day. It was a rubber egg so I've no idea who done it.
