    Hi, about a week or so ago one of my chickens started laying these white eggs with a brown spot on the fat end of the egg. The eggs all of my chickens lay are brown normally so this is weird. The white egg is fine aparently. We still eat it but maybe we shouldn't? Is that hen sick? Missing something in her diet? None of them sneezes or acts strangely. They get layer pellets and table scraps. About 2-3 times a week they get to roam about the yard and find themselves some treats. Hmmm, any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Has it been going on for a while too? I wish someone had an insight.
    I might repost this just to give it another shot.

    If they are molting, that would lighten up the brown eggs and could leave pigment on one end. They're fine to eat.
