We have gotten a few of these...doesn't happen all the time.
Any ideas? Thanks.
WHOA! I wish i knew! It looks like sidewalk chaulk!!! Thanks for sharing the picture!!! Someone will come along and help!
Is it hard? It looks like it's hard.
I'm afraid I can't help, I just want to say it looks very neat, like you paper-mached and painted it!
Looks like a golf ball. You haven't been putting golf balls in the nest boxes for visual insentive have you?
Seriously, it looks likes a lot of calcium, I guess that's better than eggs with no shells.
I have a stupid question. Which end of the egg comes out first when the chicken lays it? The fat end, or the skinny end?
Yep---it is hard! Um, not sure which end comes out first, sorry. It does look and feel very cool. they basically just get their regular food and once in a while we give them some treats like some greens or fruits-watermelon, lettuce, yogurt, broccoli, etc. No golf balls either! LOL
Hens will sometimes amaze you at the things they lay, it appears to be a minor quirk.
Are they the same on the inside? The picture would make a good avatar, since you don't have one yet.
Minor quirk. Probably stress of some sort at the time of laying. Example, having to wait too long for the nestbox she wanted or being spooked during the egg making process.
If it occured regularly it could be a sign of illness - sorry I forget the specific illness.
Maybe this link will help you:
It could be a sign of Infectious Bronchitis.
