    Found this today. It was flat on one side with this crazy imprint. I think a light brahma laid it.
    edit: she's a very healthy hen who just laid an odd egg, but thanks for the concern [​IMG]

    I think that is what happens if a hen jumps from a high perch before she gets ready to lay an egg. Therefore, it creates a flat spot on the egg.

    I think that is what they lay after they have been exposed to infectious bronchitis... [​IMG]

    Quote:I highly doubt that a disease could have anything to do with the way it's shaped. My guess would be that someone needs more oyster shell in their diet.
