    They look slightly deflated, shell is firm
    It's been cold in the teens. Anyone commenting, thanks in advance

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad to have you join us. Are you eggs from chickens new to laying? or are they hens that have resumed laying? Either way, the odd strange egg is to be expected and is nothing to worry about.

    Two years old, lay all winter, crumble feed, plenty of boss and oyster she'll. They, or perhaps one of seven hens started producing what we call deflated eggs. We were just concerned for our girls.
