    By the time I went to bed last night I'd only gotten 1 egg out of my 3 hens so I just now went to see if they gave me anymore goodies.. There was only one egg in there but it was weird looking.. It was also busted on one side

    The darker end was really thin, the egg was fertile.. I just gave them oyster shell 2 days ago, so whats up with this?


    On a side note, I've got 43 A&m eggs as well as 3 of my jumbo brown coturnix eggs in the bator.. Due to hatch in 6 days. The first time I tried to incubate any of my own eggs they never even started developing, but it was awesome because when I candled I saw a little babies head against the side of the egg [​IMG]
    Every one of those 46 eggs are developing!

    It's a henanomaly!
    I have one that cranks out a strange colored and often misshapen egg like this.

    I would never try to hatch an egg like mine, but nothing wrong with the one you are holding.

    Yeah.. I think one of my hens must be molting or something.. I've only been getting 3 eggs every few days, otherwise I only get 2
