    I have a production red who will be a year old at the end of april and her last 5 eggs have looked like this...( kind of like they broke and then were superglued together) there is a hump or "ridge" all the way around the diameter of the egg kind of like a "bulge" Does anyone know why this may be happening? Thanks for any help![​IMG] And do you suppose the eggs are ok to eat, I cracked a couple open and they appear normal?

    It's just a glitch in her egg laying system. It's calcium layers, nothing wrong with the egg. It happens.
