    Found this egg in my girl looked TIRED! I think this is her first egg...Wheaten colored EE 23 weeks old.
    The egg looked like 2 eggs joined together in the center and was weeping egg white from its pores! Very Weird...
    ALSO a double yoker!

    I found an egg like this a couple of weeks ago in my nesting boxes. Ours was more narrowed in the center like an hour glass or a figure eight, like it didn't seperate all the way. Ours was a double yoke also, but it wasn't weeping like yours. [​IMG]

    Whew, when I read weeping egg I was thinking incubation and rotting!!! Good it was a good odd first egg thing instead!

    Looked like it wasn't even egg shaped at all! I've had some like that. Mine didn't weep though. Maybe I got to them before they had a chance to start.
    I assume your girls have access to oyster shells for calcium and to build a better egg shell. I know some pullets take some time to get the egg laying down right.

    I would like to suggest picking up the baling twine, though.
    Your chickens could get it wrapped around a leg or neck & it could really hurt them.

    Thanks Jean...I beat you to it!
    This was the top of a full straw bale in my daughter left the door open and my hen wondered in!
    I scrambled the egg and fed it back to her...thought that was only fair! [​IMG]
