    The shell isn't soft, but I've never seen an egg like this... What could it be? [​IMG]

    Sometimes hens just lay goofy looking eggs. My hens do so every once in a while, my leghorn being the worst for it. I don't think there is anything wrong with your hen, just a bit of a manufacturing error :)

    We get weird ones every now and then. Nature isn't perfect. Unless its happening regularly, its probably nothing.

    Sometimes, for unknown reasons, hens lay odd-looking eggs. It not necessarily because they have some sort of disease or deformity; it just randomly occurs. I don't think its anything to worry about. [​IMG]

    Have you had any sneezing or respiratory symptoms in the flock? Sometimes infectious bronchitis can affect the reproductive system and cause eggs to be malformed. If not, it's probably just a weird egg.
