    One of my Black Austrialorps ( 1 year old ) is laying the weridest eggs.

    Here's what the egg look like:

    They are flat'ish on two sides . . . and very large on one end - the other end quickly tapers to a point.
    The shell breaks easily and it also has several odd wrinkles in it.
    The birds have access to calcium chips.

    • Any ideas what is causing this ?
    • Can I do anything to fix it ?

    First guess stress. Something changed for her. Parasite, disease, flock dynamics. She may just Iron out the wrinkles herself in time. [​IMG]
