    These 2 eggs came from 2 different chickens today, we have t had anything like it before. We do have one broody hen who is incubating some fertile eggs atm. Could that be causing stress to the others causing weird eggs? Thanks for your help! [​IMG]

    Bottom egg in is a 'slab sided'.
    Top one just a shelling glitch.....could be stress or just a one off.

    Today we got two perfectly good eggs and now this.... something must be going on. Should I worry yet? Or maybe they just had a bad day?

    Bet that came form the one who laid the slab sided.
    I wouldn't worry too much, there's not much you can do about it anyway...just keep them as healthy as you can with a good balanced feed and space.
    Did it come from this girl? https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1158112/chicken-newbie-bloody-eggs-and-vent#post_18186011
    Sounds like you bought some older hens a couple months ago?
