    Im glad shes doing better, I found this article on egg drop syndrome this is a quote from it, luckily you don't have it cause from what I have read its not in the US yet.

    "Ducks and geese are the natural host of the EDS virus. It was first described in chickens in the 1970s and was spread all over the world except to the United States and Canada. The disease is most severe in broiler breeders and brown egg layers. White layer lines are less affected". http://www.lah.de/Egg-Drop-Syndrome.93.0.html

    Good luck hope she continues with the normal eggs lol

    NaturalMom, I don't know what your bird's reproductive cycle looks like but IF (not attacking you, yo) your bird is/was laying funky eggs after they're past juvvie stage, then yes there IS an issue. Whatever it is - lack of calcium, copper, high stress, COC, Markek's vaccine passing through, infectious bronchitis (as is often the case with wrinkly eggs), Inherited Newcastle Disease, etc, whatever.

    If they were mine, I certainly wouldn't eat those eggs unless I knew exactly what was wrong with the bird(s). Even then, I'd garbage it & de-contaminate the area just to be sure. Natural Mom, I really do hope your bird is doing much better. But if in the next few months she's not laying her eggs as frequently anymore then I would at least try to find out what's up with her (EDS does not outwardly affect the appearance of the chicken).

    Btw, I see folks quote the same text as redrstr did, which is re-quoted from other sites. The words Egg Drop Syndrome may not be 'recognized' in the US, but that's not to say it isn't there. Where is the date on that quote? Who is stating whether or not it's in the US? Where's the study group(s) & what's the date on their last study?

    Just concerned is all. I like that this thread shows wacky pics of eggs. I just don't want someone to say to another user here, "Oh they're completely fine!" when the chicken(s) could very well need some help. Whatever it may be.[​IMG]

    Not really weird or odd, just pretty. My white rock usually lays regular brown eggs but she has been getting creative lately. [​IMG]

    Okay my girls were born 2/23/13. That means they are now 4 mos old and should start laying any day now. Yippeee! My roosters are doing the rooster thing, now I'm just waiting for my hens to do their hen thing.
